Brain-Eating Amoeba Attacks Little Girl After Swim!

| Filed under: Sad SadHealthScary!

Swimming in lakes and ponds and stuff is just a part of a fab childhood!

There's nothing better than nature, a picnic, some swimming and fun! If you can ignore what might be IN the lake — like fish and gross things — you can have a great time!

Brain-eating amoebas are trying to RUIN that for our youth! Boo!

A 12 year old little girl named Kali Hardig contracted a brain-eating amoeba after swimming in a lake, and ended up with a rare meningitis!

Now she's fighting for her life.

The disease kills 99% of people who contract it, so we hope that the Arkansas hospital she's in is up for helping her win the very steep hill battle she's waging!

Check out the video (above) for more details, and know that little Kali needs all the positive support and vibes she can get! If Aimee Copeland can beat flesh-eating bacteria (which is different, but still horrible, lake-borne problem), we have hope for Kali yet!
