My story

[p]To celebrate Kimberley Walsh's 34th birthday on 20th November, I thought it would be a lovely idea for her fans to raise money for 2 charities that are close to her heart. [/p] [p]The Haven's mission is to help people through the physical and emotional experience of breast cancer by offering a free, in-depth and personalised programme of psychological support and complementary therapies.[/p] [p]Kimberley became involved with The Haven when her former dance teacher and close friend Deana Morgan was diagnosed with breast cancer. Deana and Kimberley opened The Yorkshire Haven in Leeds in October 2008 and since then they have worked tirelessly to raise money and awareness for the charity.[/p] [p]The Haven does not receive any Government funding and is entirely dependent on charitable donations and fundraising events to operate their services. It costs around £1000 to provide a programme of support for each visitor.[/p] [p]CMV, or Cytomegalovirus, is a common virus that can infect people of all ages. Once CMV is in a person’s body, it stays there for life. Most healthy adults and children will have no signs or symptoms and no long-term effects from CMV. It can, however, be very dangerous to unborn babies.  Congenital CMV is one of the main causes of children being born with permanent disabilities. 1 in 1000 babies will be damaged by CMV. That's almost 1000 babies every year. CMV Action raises much needed awareness and provides support for those affected by the virus. [/p] [p]Kimberley became involved with CMV Action when her friend's son was affected by the virus that left him with permanent disabilities. She became a Patron of CMV Action in 2014. [/p] [p]CMV Action receives no government funding and is a relatively new and small charity. Donations will go to raising much needed awareness of CMV, producing support material for parents and resources for health professionals.[/p] [p]Kimberley does so much to support and raise awareness for these charities, so now it is our turn to take a leaf out of her book! Please help to raise money for The Haven Leeds and CMV Action. I think it will be the perfect birthday gift for her from her loyal fans! Any donation, big or small, is much appreciated.[/p][p]Please include a birthday message for Kimberley to read! [/p] [p]Thank you![/p]
