Hearts Desire - Supporting Families with Infertility
Organized by: Hearts Desire Foundation
We are raising money to support families dealing with infertility treatments.
For this child I have prayed and the Lord has granted the desires of my heart 1 Samuel 1:27
My husband & I started the Hearts Desire Foundation to raise money for families dealing with infertility treatments. Infertility affects 1 in 8 families. It is a silent and private battle - most families don't discuss it in the open as they would an illness.
But the difficulty, intensity and heartache is immeasurable. We started on our infertility journey 3 and a half years ago. We were blessed to give birth to our baby boy Luke in 2013 but have struggled to conceive since undergoing nearly two years of treatments.
We endured 2 miscarriages including a failed IVF and over a dozen IUI rounds. The intensity and rollercoaster ride on our emotions and stress is hard to quantify, not to mention the cost.
One round of IVF can cost over $20,000 for a single embryo transfer. That's one chance to conceive with anywhere from a 20-50% chance of success. And at the end of it, if you don't conceive, you are out the cost as well as the hope.
Financial burden should not be one of the determining factors as to whether or not a family can expand. We are seeking to raise money to provide financial support for couples and families in need. Through various local churches we will reach families in need and provide assistance. There is no amount too small to help -- and we deeply appreciate all support toward our goal.
