Dear Errol & Judy

Happy, Beautiful & Blessed Birthdays...
When I think of the Soul
of a Child that has Died
I Picture a Butterfly
so Beautiful and Brave
I ask Myself
Is this a Child I could have Saved?
Music and Lyrics written for NMA by Paul Hampton
"I want to remind all those people that don’t believe in vaccinations, that being an American means that we have a choice. If all those moms and dads, that lost their children, had known that there was an vaccination available, to save their children, they would have chosen to vaccinate. I want to thank everyone that has donated, and will donate their time, money and support in order to save lives in the future.”  Errol Rappaport

This year’s NMA’s “Give Kids A Shot!” Gala will take place on Monday, May 8, 2017 and will honor “Hall of Fame” hockey player and NY Ranger Legend Rod Gilbert, Francesca Testa, Kayla St. Pierre, Dr. Amy Middleman, and the McKenzie Meningitis Foundation. The event will take place at NYC’s ESPACE (635 West 42nd Street).  This event will toast this year’s honorees and offer support to the 2017 NMA “Give Kids A Shot!” Gala chairs Lenore Cooney, Sara Herbert-Galloway, Errol Rappaport, and Gary Springer and Honorary Event Chairs are Ambassador and Mrs. John L. Loeb, Jr. Heather Randall, Liv Ullman and Donald Saunders, and Nick Springer and Honorary Event Committee includes fashion icon Iris Apfel,

The National Meningitis Association works to protect families from the devastating effects of meningococcal disease by educating the public, medical professionals and others about the disease and vaccines available to prevent it.   NMA was formed in 2002 by parents whose children died or live with permanent disabilities from meningococcal disease. Like many families, NMA’s founders were unaware that meningococcal vaccination could have prevented their anguish. Since NMA was founded, great strides have been made. NMA has supported the creation of broad recommendations for meningococcal vaccines to protect preteens and teens, worked to advocate for state vaccination requirements and helped increase awareness and vaccine uptake. The organization also provides emotional support for individuals and families who have been affected by meningococcal disease.

To accomplish its goals, NMA develops programs and resources that reach audiences on national and grassroots levels. Parents, disease survivors and other family members help carry out NMA’s mission by conducting community awareness activities across the country through two key programs: Moms on Meningitis (M.O.M.s) and Together Educating About Meningitis (T.E.A.M.). For disease and prevention information, downloadable resources and personal stories from M.O.M.s and T.E.A.M. members,
