My story

[p]Hi All,[/p][p]For those that don't know, in February my sister and her husband lost their daughter, Eva, to a virus known simply as CMV.[/p][p]CMV (Cytomegalovirus) doesn't cause symptoms in most people, so many people carrying the virus won't know they have had it. But some people can develop flu-like symptoms such as a fever, sore throat and swollen glands when they are first infected with the virus. Up to 80% of adults in the UK are thought to have been infected with CMV. Many people are first infected as children. The virus usually remains inactive in the body and does not cause any problems. It can become a risk if a person infected with an active strain of CMV has a weakened immune system, or if a pregnant woman is infected with an active strain and passes it on to her baby.[/p][p]Whilst it is hard to avoid every potential exposure, simply improving hygiene measures, (particularly when interacting with children under 5), can markedly reduce the risk of transmission. (wash hands/not share cutlery etc).[/p][p] [/p][p]More information on CMV can be found [url=https://cmvaction.org.uk/sites/default/files/your_questions_answered_2016_0.pdf]here.[/url][/p][p] [/p][p]This October, I will be completing the Great South Run in memory of my Niece Eva and to raise further awareness of CMV. (Just because I'm skinny doesn't mean I'm a good runner though). If you wish to, and are able to, then there is an option to donate.[/p][p]Great South Run [url=https://eur01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.greatrun.org%2Fgreat-south-run&data=02%7C01%7Ccolin.jordan%40astonmartin.com%7C14d1d80e91884d3dee4808d7249c2cb0%7C63ab48267a7348169bc13934580f4485%7C1%7C1%7C637018125506676917&sdata=bg%2BjTNmjn8itdT%2FVCRTDXQGPMuRuX7M%2Fd1LrY%2FQyuWo%3D&reserved=0]info[/url][/p][p][br][/p][p]By reading this, you have helped to spread further awareness of CMV.[/p][p]Thank you[/p]
