Have you or anyone you know ever had Dengue Fever?

Dengue is a disease occurring in the tropics, and one of the worst of the mosquito-borne viral diseases affecting humans. It's comparable to Malaria.

Jennifer's family lives in San Fernando La Union, in the northern part of the Philippines. A Dengue Fever epidemic has broken out, and the number of cases has increased more than 100% from last year.

Earlier this month, one of Jennifer's younger sisters, Mitchel, was struck with Dengue and progressed to Stage 3. Her fever rose to 105, and she was suddenly unable to breathe. Her doctors put her on oxygen and gave her a blood transfusion. It was a tough time for all of us, but our Mitchel made it, now she's home recovering.

Last week, Jennifer and Mitchel's brother Carl John (CJ), came down with Dengue. CJ is only 14, so we're in for another fight.
