Help end leading cause of childhood disability in 20 seconds please!

Did you know that CMV (cytomegalovirus) is the leading cause of childhood disability in America? 1 in 150 babies born is born with CMV. Of those, 1 in 5 will be permanently disabled! CMV disables more children each year than Down Syndrome, Spina Bifida or Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. Yet, only 14% of women know about CMV.

My 7 year old son Brendan is severely disabled and medically fragile due to CMV. In 2007, I established the first non-profit foundation dedicated to raising awareness about CMV. We ask all the mommies here to help us obtain an important grant which will allow our foundation to air PSA's about CMV across TV in America! Only 4 days left, the grant is done by each person casting one simple vote for us via Facebook. The link is below. Please, help us put an end to this common, yet life-altering birth defect virus. And please go to our website to educate yourself about CMV. Thank you! Tracy www.cmvfoundation.org To vote:http://bit.ly/l8FDLb
