Kimberly Walsh

Kimberley Walsh is a Patron of CMV Action.

For Kimberley, it’s personal, especially now she has her own two young sons.  Kimberley's friend, Lisa, has a son who has been affected by the virus. Christian was diagnosed with Congenital Cytomegalovirus shortly after he was born.  Christian has been left with permanent disabilities.

“I have always wanted to do something for Christian and particularly the charity CMV Action, set up to support families affected by CMV and to raise awareness of the CMV virus.”

We are so pleased Kimberley has chosen to support CMV Action as an official patron.  Kimberley appeared on All Star Family Fortunes in January 2014 and we look forward to working together on raising awareness of CMV.  Congenital CMV is one of the main causes of children being born with birth defects in the UK but pregnant women are not routinely told about it, nor the simple steps they can take to protect themselves.

Singer, dancer, actress, lover of all things musical theatre and will always be 1/5 of Girls Aloud
