Remember Sierra…..

On April 10th, 5 years ago from today, this world lost one of the most beautiful, loving, happy, compassionate people anyone has ever known. On Easter morning 2007, Sierra was her happy, healthy self & by evening she became sick with flu-like symptoms.

Within 24 hours she was in the Emergency Room on a ventilator. The next morning, Sierra passed away of a devastating disease, called Bacterial Meningitis.

So many of us were not aware of this fatal disease and that there was a vaccination that could have prevented it, until after she was gone. This day marks one of the darkest days that Sierra’s family could have ever imagined. We are asking for your help to bring some joy to them on this extremely difficult day. From the bottom of our hearts, we ask you to“REMEMBER”.

REMEMBER Sierra” and tell everyone you know about Bacterial Meningitis & make sure they are vaccinated against this deadly disease!

“REMEMBER Sierra’s Family” and REGISTER TODAY, April 10th, for Sierra’s 5th Annual 5K Run/Walk, to show your love and support for this family who has devoted their lives to preventing this horrible tragedy from happening to any other family!

“REMEMBER to Pay It Forward” and forward this email to everyone you know! We encourage you to invite at least 1 person that has not been to Sierra’s Race, to come and be a part of this incredible, life-changing event!

    Hello –

    I wanted to say what a beautiful website & tribute to your daughter. We too lost a child to meningitis – March 19th, 2007.

    Dante was a loving, caring young man with a terrific sense of humor. (Sounds a lot like Sierra!)

    Who knows why it was our children who were struck with this horrible disease, but thank you for your efforts at getting the word out and raising funds to help combat this illness.

    I hope and pray for all of us – that we may someday be reunited with our angels in Heaven!

    God bless you and your family,

    Marty and Valerie Young
