you may know, we lost our precious Elise 4 years ago this coming June to a
virus called CMV (or Cytomegalovirus). We were honored to be chosen as
this year's March of Dimes Ambassador family. Please join us for our walk
in memory of our daughter, and donate whatever you feel led. March of
Dimes has funded various research grants over the past few years related to CMV
and its prevention/future vaccination. CMV cannot be stopped (and babies
cannot be saved!) without the awareness of the general public of
CMV and support from our government. As I type this, legislation
is in the works in TN for mandatory CMV education for pregnant women
as well as newborn testing for any baby who fails a hearing screen (red flag
for CMV). It is because of the wonderful support from family and friends
such as you that we press forward, educating all we are able, about CMV and its
is the link to donate and/or join our team to walk. We would love to have you
walk with us! http://www.marchforbabies.org/team/educateforelise
for Babies will be Sunday, April 19th. Registration is at 1:00 and walk begins
at 2:15. More information and our story can be found in the link above.
