In 2011, Shantell Roberts, President and Founder of Touching Young Lives Incorporated, suffered a tragic lost when her one year old daughter died to Pneumonia. She was “diagnosed” at a prominent health facility as just having a “viral infection” also known as a common cold. Forty-eight hours after her healthcare visit, she died. Her official autopsy results indicated that she died from MRSA Pneumonia. As a parent, it is impossible to protect your child(ren) from everything.
Touching Young Lives, Incorporated strives to ensure the health and well-being of infants and children through providing public information on childhood influenza and pneumonia.
