Raising money for a baby
Organized by: Katherine Warren
"Whenever everyone you know and love has the one thing you want" I share this quote for one important reason... that is exactly how my friends feel everyday as they see everyone around them starting families when they have been trying for years and due to a series of unfortunate events, including polycystic ovaries and hormone imbalances, have been unsuccessful. February 2016, at the age of 32, after two years of multiple fertility treatments and IUI treatments in hopes of conceiving, they finally got a positive test. Unfortunately, a few weeks into her pregnancy it was found that the baby, due to scarring of the tubes from many cysts rupturing over the years, got stuck in her fallopian tube. They not only lost the baby, but she also lost her tube. Her only option is IVF as any further IUI treatments are extremely high risk and is unlikely to result in a healthy pregnancy. As we all know, insurance only goes so far and although has helped them thus far in their journey, they do not cover ANY cost for IVF treatments. They both have full time jobs along with a part time job in order to help save for IVF. This fundraiser is to help them save for IVF, as they are both in their mid-thirties and desperately want a family of their own. Any amount helps, and I know although they both have a really hard time asking for financial help, they will appreciate any amount donated. They are the most deserving, sweet people and with your help they will make great parent. Thank you all!
