Voice of the Victims

My husband contracted Legionnaires’.  It was so severe that he almost did not make it.  He is permanently disabled…from the Legionnaires’. There appears to be no relief despite multiple treatment modalities.  His symptoms remain with periods of exacerbations.


I was in coma for a month with Legionnaires'... from what I was told would take a couple weeks to get under control. Hang in there, but if have any questions about what’s going on, if I can, I will help... I don’t remember, but all my family does.


My husband was a patient in a local hospital for treatment of a platelet disorder and developed Legionnaires’ disease. He spent a total of about 50 days in the hospital during a three month period.
