Emma Shearer's Charity Abseil for CMV Action

On Monday the 27th April 2015, between 10am and 11am, Emma will be doing a sponsored abseil from the spire at Glasgow Climbing Centre in aid of CMV Action.  
 
A personal note from Emma:

"CMV is a common virus in which can affect people of all different ages. Once CMV makes its way into a persons body, it stays there for life. Most healthy adults and children will have no signs, symptoms or long term effects from the virus but unfortunately it can be very harmful to unborn babies. CMV is one of the main causes of children being born with permanet disabilities. CMV is the most common infection at birth. 1 in 150 newborn babies are born with congenital CMV.

As CMV is a relatively unknown condition, it is a common misconception that it is rare. It is actually in fact more common than Down's Syndrome, Toxoplasmosis, Spina Bifida or Cystic Fibrosis.

I found out about this amazing charity through my idol: Kimberley Walsh (former Girls Aloud star) when she appeared on All Star Family Fortunes to raise vital funds for the charity. 

Thank you so very much for all your support. Any donations are much appreciated and all money raised will be put to great use by the charity!
