Michael Perkins is an unvaccinated child who contracted measles on an airplane.


Michael came into the practice with his mother, Arlene, and two brothers. His mother believed he'd picked up a cold on the airplane, but when Cooper examined him, he determined that Michael actually had the measles. Michael went home with his mother, but she brought him to the hospital when his fever spiked and she couldn't get it down. Michael's condition continued to worsen and he had to be intubated when he stopped breathing. He later coded and was unable to be resuscitated.



His best friend in Switzerland has sheep and cows at his house.
