My story

[p]CMV Action is the only UK charity offering advice and support to families affected by congenital CMV. They are supported by medical professionals and all their advice is founded on the most recent evidence based clinical research and current practices. They raise public and professional awareness and campaign for better prevention measures and standards of care within our health service.[/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 who become infected will have no signs or symptoms and no long term effects from CMV. It can however pose serious risks to unborn babies if a pregnant woman catches it for the first time. Congenital CMV is when a baby has been infected before birth. It is one of the leading causes of hearing loss in children and one of the main causes of childhood disability. [/p][p]CMV is the most common infection passed from mother to unborn baby.[/p][p]The majority of babies born with congenital CMV will not have any symptoms at birth and will not suffer any long term problems. However, two or three babies are affected by the CMV virus every day in the UK – almost 1000 babies every year. Congenital CMV is more common than Down's Syndrome and causes more birth defects and childhood deaths than Toxoplasmosis (from cat poo) or Listeriosis (from soft cheese).[/p][p]Jack Garlick, Scott's son and Dean's nephew, was born with Congenital CMV and has life long disabilities as a result. Any money raised for CMV Action will help the charity raise more awareness and hopefully prevent more babies being affected by the virus.[/p]
