Story

[p]I am doing this fundraiser to help raise the awareness of CMV. As a first time mum, this was very daunting and upsetting to be told the news that your baby has been left with permanent brain damage, and may lose her hearing and eye sight due to an infection caught in pregnancy that I had no knowledge of. As you can imagine, this is heartbreaking to be told your baby is anything but perfect. Research shows how common this infection is, and that 80% of people are exposed to this in a lifetime but may never be aware of it, I would like to help raise awareness for this, as simple measures can be taken for this infection to be easily avoided. It's been a very hard time over the past 9 months starting off with 3 weeks in special care with constant blood tests, brain scans, happy and sad days where we have just wanted to give up. Endless trips to A+E and constant appointments. I am incredibly proud of how Isla rose is coming on and fighting this. She is much stronger than me!! She has completed her 6 months treatment and has been signed off from the eye doctor! I would love to raise some money to help this charity as it isn't thought enough of. [/p]
