Another Virginia Girl, Zoey Weaver, Fights E. coli

Accordning to press reports, Zoey Weaver, a Virginia girl, is battling a potential deadly bacteria at a Mid-state Hospital.

Zoey’s mother, Rebecca Weaver, says, “it is hard just seeing her laying there when she is usually just up and going constantly – I would give anything just to see her up and playing.”

But now her parents watch helplessly as their daughter fights a vicious infection.

Zoey’s Dad, John Weaver, says, “E. coli there ain’t no treatment – it just has to run it’s course and you are pretty much helpless – they just treat the side effects of it its just hard seeing your child sick and not being able to do anything for her.”

In the past six weeks public health departments have recorded 18 cases of E. coli in western Virginia and northern Tennessee.
