The First Post

Hello and welcome to the Kearney Family Blog. We have created this blog so we can keep you up to date on what we are doing. The initial impetus for creating this blog is to talk about our daughter Abigail Ann Kearney. Pictured here to the right, Abby always liked to smile and also show off her curly hair on top of her pretty head. She was born on April 9, 2007, weighing 6 lbs., 3 oz. Abby is the absolute joy of our life. She always brings happiness to those around her.

On May 12, 2008, the most devastating thing imaginable occurred. Abby died after a brief illness with a non-vaccine strain of pneumococcal meningitis.

We will write on this blog to keep everyone up to date on pneumococcal meningitis research. We invite people to read and even suggest topics to write about pertaining to pneumococcal meningitis. We will even write about topics interesting to our family.

Thank you.
