Team story

[p]Hi - welcome to my fundraising page![/p][p][br][/p][p]I am raising funds and awareness for CMV Action as our second son, Mylo, was diagnosed with congenital cytomegalovirus (cCMV) shortly after his birth in September 2015. The funds help CMV Action to conduct research into CMV and also allows them to educate health professionals.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Mylo is 4 years old. He is unable walk or talk, he has severe hearing loss and a visual impairment. This is all due to contracting CMV. His journey in life will be far more difficult than others but we have a fantastic support network and he is getting amazing help from the multiple health professionals who care for Mylo. We live in hope that one day our amazing little boy will be able to do the simple things in life that we all take for granted. [/p][p][br][/p][p]In 2017, I (along with some fantastic friends) took part in seven running, cycling and obstacle course challenges to raise money and awareness for CMV Action. Due to the overwhelming support we decided to hold our first CMV Action Charity Fundraising Evening in February 2018 with great success.[/p][p][br][/p][p]We are back again in November 2019 to hold our second Charity Fundraising Evening to raise much needed funds for the continued efforts of the brilliant CMV Action trustees and volunteers.[/p][p][br][/p][p]When I found out about CMV Action and read their mission statement ‘[b]Educate, Vaccinate, Eradicate’ [/b]I wanted to help raise awareness and funds for their research. Knowing that there could one day be a vaccine for CMV made we want to do my bit to raise much needed funding for research. It is estimated that one to two in every 100 UK babies will be born with congenital CMV with about 13% having problems at birth such as hearing loss and learning difficulties.[/p][p][br][/p][p]The following extract is from the NHS -[/p][p]"Research is currently being carried out to find a possible vaccine for CMV. However, it's unlikely that a vaccine will be available for several years."[/p][p][br][/p][p]It would be amazing for a vaccine to become a reality and by donating you are helping that happen. Please sponsor whatever you can and if you would like to join me for any of the challenges please let me know![/p][p][br][/p][p]Thank you so much - Mylo (and all his Mates) x[/p][p]And his proudest family - Adam, Ruth & Seth x[/p][p][br][/p][p]Please take a look at the CMV Action website for more info[/p][p]Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
