A Very Special Graduation

Jeanna Giese graduated from college on Sunday. Well, a lot of kids graduate this time of year, and frankly unless it’s your kid you just kind of smile and move along.

But allow me to suggest that Jenna is different. You see, on September 12th, 2004 she was bitten on the finger by a bat. The small wound was cleaned and forgotten about and she went on with her life.

One month later she had blurred double vision and was taken to the hospital with slurred speech and she began salivating profusely. On October 18th the CDC confirmed that she had full-blown rabies. She had not received the standard course of vaccine shots immediately following the bite back in September, and she was going to die a horrible death within 24, maybe 48 hours.

At the stage her disease was at the survival rate was 0%. No one had ever EVER survived rabies without being vaccinated immediately after the infection.

Until Jeanna.
