"Ryan Bresnaham, our son, died very suddenly on 31st March 2010 of Meningitis B. He was a fit, healthy, caring young man, full of personality and a sports scholar at Clifton College. We had no notice or even time to say goodbye - it all happened within an hour. We are trying it remain positive and determined that something good must come out of his life and are raising funds for a life for a cure - Ryan`s Meningitis Appeal. Our initial target is £1million towards an overall £7million target within meningitis UK to find a vaccine for this merciless disease. Every penny that is raised goes towards Ryan`s Appeal which has now reached a staggering £180,000. We have been very fortunate to be surrounded by amazing support from friends and family to help us to achieve our goal and eventually stop others going through this heartache."
