June is CMV Awareness Month, an annual, month-long campaign intended to educate women of childbearing age about the risks of congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) – the most infectious cause of birth defects in the United States. Please help support our mission by making a donation today. All proceeds will go towards our research, prevention, screening, education and outreach efforts. Together, we can SPEAK UP, SPEAK OUT, and/or SIGN for CMV!
Please check our website for updates about our Awareness Month activities and please share your photos with us via social media using the hashtags: #CMVawareness #stopCMV #Screen4CMV #CMVSpeaks #CMVkids #FacesofCMV
The National CMV Foundation is a network of advocates and professionals who work to inform and educate communities about the risks of congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection, especially among pregnant women. Children born with CMV may have birth defects and experience significant development disabilities. Unfortunately, and despite this reality, CMV remains the most common infection babies are born with in the U.S. The Foundation's primary mission is to eliminate congenital CMV infection within the next generation.
