Thanks for the friend request and for inviting me to list my blog on your blog hop. We are now friends and I just posted my blog and a comment on your blog and I also joined your blog. Should I say "blog" one more time.
I really appreciate your warm welcome and look forward to your comments on my blog... there, I said it again! ;)
Hi Jeannette...thanks for the comment! Can you please help me? I am new to the blog world. I am the President/Founder of a non-profit foundation (www.cmvfoundation.org) and we are in a grant competition on FB sponsored by Chase. It ends in 4 days. My foundation is dedicated to raising awareness about the leading cause of childhood disability, CMV. Have you heard of it? Most women have not. I know I hadn't until my son was diagnosed with it at 3 1/2 weeks old. He is now severely disabled and medically fragile. My foundation needs to win this grant so we can air our PSA's on national TV across America to educate woman about CMV...a common virus and childhood illness, but if contracted while a woman is pregnant it can have devastating effects on the unborn baby! This is what happened to my son. This is what I am now on a mission to prevent from happening any more. Can you please help me get the word out and get everyone you know on Facebook to vote for us? It is a one time vote...20 seconds and done...but so very important to save babies yet to be born from CMV. Thank you in advance <3
Jeannette, you're from Asheville, one of my favorite places in the world! I lived in Jackson County for over 30 years, taught at WCU. I have a son, Billy, now 55 years old. He has Down syndrome and is the love of my life. Tell me about you!
