Recently my mother, Roxanne Wilson, contracted the H1N1 flu virus, also known as the swine flu. She is feeling much better now, but her illness reminded my family that it is important to take extra steps to make sure we all stay healthy.
This outbreak has been called an epidemic, but most people do not think that it will affect them or their loved ones. This incident has shown my family how important it is to take precautionary steps – things as simple as washing your hands more often – to prevent ourselves from contracting what could be a significant illness.
This is a serious matter, so as a part of the Wilson family I want to encourage you and your family to get informed and take extra steps to stay healthy.
