CMV Awareness

Meet Gracyn! #littlestwarriorwednesday

Gracyn was diagnosed with congenital cytomegalovirus after a lab tech accidentally ran the wrong blood test. Originally being tested for cystic fibrosis, one wrong key click ended up being the biggest blessing! Most people will have CMV at some point in their life, but it’s only a risk for people with suppressed immune systems and babies whose mothers catch it while they are pregnant. For Gracyn, CMV has lead to complete hearing loss, vision issues, liver and blood problems, global developments delay, and much more. She continues to blow doctors and therapists away as the original outlook was pretty grim!
