Keira Hall was born in 2012 after a seemingly typical pregnancy. At full term, Keira was very sick and weighed just over 4 lbs!. Her family soon learned that Keira had congenital cytomegalovirus (cCMV), a very common virus that is responsivel for loads of birth defects in our country. Only 9% of women have ever heard of it! In 2016, Keira's mom and others founded the Idaho CMV Advocacy Project, whose mission is to educate all women of childbaring age and their caregivers about the incidence, severity, and preventability of CMV. In 2017, Idaho CMV helped pass Idaho's first legislation toward this end. As a result, CMV education materials are now available for free throught the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. In 2018, Idaho CMV officially became affilated with the National CMV Foundation, an organization with similar goals and a wider reach. Together, our goal is to raise $5000 in 2019. All proceeds to to support awareness, providing access to resources, and sharing prevention information to eliminate cCMV.
