Please join Jeff Titus and his family as they walk for the Whittingham Cancer Center. Proceeds from the fundraiser will directly enhance the lives of patients and their families through patient care initiatives, innovative therapies, research and clinical trials, support services and a new program offering patients and their families a personalized plan of care. The Whittinghams are long-standing friends and supporters of Norwalk Hospital.

 
This year’s walk/run will be named “Sally’s Run” in memory of Sally Kalin, a Wilton woman who lost her life to cancer in June 2010, after an eight-year battle with the disease. Steve Kalin, Sally’s husband, said “We were always amazed by the wonderful, compassionate care Sally received at Norwalk Hospital… To celebrate Sally’s legacy, we chose to name the run in her honor and help raise greater awareness and funding for the Whittingham Cancer Center.”
 
Steve Kalin, with his children, and Jeff Titus, along with his family, will be attending the event this Saturday, May 14th, at Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk. Registration starts at 10:00 am and the 3K or 5K walk/run start at 12:00 pm. The post-event festivities start at 12:30 pm.
 
“Steve and his family are wonderful friends, as well as clients of Titus Built.  We are happy to support such a great cause in honoring Sally’s life while raising money and awareness for our local cancer treatment facility at Norwalk Hospital,” said Jeff Titus, General Manager of Titus Built, LLC.

New Canaan, CT… Cocktails for a Cause: STOP CMV

Cocktails for a Cause: STOP CMV

This past Saturday, December 4th, Jeff and Christine Titus enjoyed a lovely evening while attending Cocktails for a cause:  STOP CMV, hosted by Doug and Casey Famigletti of New Canaan, Connecticut. 

CMV (cytomegalovirus) is a virus that affects fetal organs. It’s the most common congenital (present at birth) infection in the United States. “Each year, about 40,000 babies are born with CMV infection. Luckily, the virus does not harm most of them. But about 4,000 of these babies develop mental retardation, learning disabilities, hearing loss, vision loss, or other disabilities as a result of CMV infection” www.marchofdimes.com.  In most cases, the pregnant mother acquires this virus through contact with small children, even possibly her own children.

 More children have disabilities due to congenital CMV (cytomegalovirus) than other well-known infections and syndromes, including Down Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Spina Bifida, and Pediatric HIV/AIDS. In a recent survey of women in the United States, only 22% had heard of CMV, compared with 97% who had heard of Down Syndrome and 98% who had heard of HIV/AIDS. A more recent study found that only 14% of women in the United States had heard of CMV…”  For further information, please visit http://www.stopcmv.org.

 Please join all of us at Titus Built in spreading the awareness of congenital CMV… Pass it on… Let’s get this virus stopped!
