Team Joe: CMV Awareness

Shortly after birth, our sweet baby Joe was diagnosed with congenital CMV. As a result, we have been given a laundry list of diagnoses which include hearing loss, developmental delay, motor impairments, and more. This Spring, Joe received cochlear implants from the team at NCH and is in the process of using this wonderful technology to help him hear!

We have seen numerous specialists and therapists at Children's over this first year (audiology, infectious disease, ENT, PT, OT, Speech Therapy, Developmental Clinic, etc.) and time and time again we realize how fortunate we are to have this wonderful facility and the angels that work there right in our backyard.

Joe is THE happiest baby in town and I truly believe he was put on this earth to teach us the power of a joyful and curious spirit. We are excited to watch Joe write his story and take us along on his adventures.

Please join Team Joe in raising money to help kids everywhere through life-saving research and care, and to support the wonderful team at NCH!!
