Brooklyn Peters

2001 –


October 29, 2001 was the happiest day of my life. It was the birth of our beautiful daughter, Brooklyn. By two months of age, Brooklyn had a clear, runny nose but her doctor assured me there was nothing to worry about when she received her first immunization shot. Then there was a series of hospital admittance as Brooklyn took ill and developed several cases of pneumonia each one worse than the previous. On April 9, 2002 at five months and eleven days old, we removed Brooklyn’s breathing tube and our sweet, innocent baby passed away in our arms. We later learned that Brooklyn had Severe Combined Immune Deficiency. Brooklyn’s full story can be found on the Immunodeficiency Canada’s website
