@liseleleil this bacteria is environmental and no doubt family members are exposed to the same things. It is everywhere … air, water and soil . If your immune system is compromised you are more susceptible . I had pneumonia 3 times in a 12 month period. Sputum tested after the 3rd time!…found this bacteria.😩 Hang on!
