Compete 4 CMV
Team Member: TimandJessica Murphy
Tim and Jessica Murphy are raising funds in support of The National CMV Foundation, and in memory of the beautiful and courageous Evelyn Grace Spytek.
We will be running the London Marathon on April 26, 2015 and asking people to support The National CMV Foundation's goal of educating, preventing, and eventually eliminating this horrible and all-too-common virus.
About The National CMV Foundation
The National CMV Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting awareness, providing access to resources, and sharing prevention information to help eliminate congenital Cytomegalovirus (CMV).
Cytomegalovirus is a common virus that can infect anyone at any age. In fact, you or a loved one might be carrying the virus right now without knowing it because the symptoms are rarely shown in healthy immune systems.
However, CMV can cause serious infections and complications among adults and children with weakened immune systems and, like Evelyn, among babies infected before birth. It's important that we boost awareness of CMV and support research for prevention, treatment, and hopefully, a cure!
