BENEFITING: NATIONAL CMV FOUNDATION INC
In March (2017) I found out I was expecting and things were going great until May 19th when I went in for a routine ultrasound and found out there were some abnormalities with the baby. I was then tested for CMV which came back positive and that I came in contact with it during this pregnancy. I was offered to do a study to treat the disease but because there were already ultrasound findings that indicate a possible CMV infection with the baby I was not eligible for the study. There are no other treatments for the CMV and all we can do is wait and hope for the best. I am doing this fundraiser not just for me but my baby as well. I want to spread awareness to the national CMV foundation in hopes to help find a treatment that will work for CMV infected women and children.
