Other Ways to Support National CMV

Be an active supporter in the quest to eradicate congenital CMV for the next generation!
 
Building awareness for a viral infection that 91% of women have never heard about is a difficult task when there are so many important causes affecting women and newborns. Funding research and education programs to support treatment, therapies and prevention, requires stamina and sustainability.
 
Your generosity allows for real progress. We've listed some ideas and opportunities to help you get involved.

Cameron - Arizona

The doctors knew Cameron's problem was viral, but they couldn't pinpoint the virus. Finally, after about 2 days, my placenta lab test came back and it was infected with CMV. I was so relieved that Cameron was going to survive, but I was not ready for the next bombshell. The NICU doctor told us that as a result of is brain damage, Cameron would not be able to “walk, talk or learn."
