My friend has been affected by CMV and had very little awareness. I had zero awareness prior to her experience.

This CMV is impacting my friends and it’s inconceivable that this is not screened for automatically in this country.

I’m signing because our precious daughter was born with CMV and thankfully it only affected her enough to cause some permanent hearing loss In both ears. More people need to be aware of this scary virus!

Thanks for adding your voice.

Knowing helped my family make unexpected preparations before my niece was born, allowing for adjustments for the unknown future. Even though things were more complicated, being aware of the situation and possibilities that lie ahead made it easier to make adjustments before she arrived so we were just ready to care for her when she did come.
