Hi all,

just a message to let you know the latest.

Unfortunately our IVF attempt failed. Even though this money only paid for one attempt, we have enough embryos to have another go. It is a fraction of the cost and thankfully we have this opportunity so we will be starting that next year.

If it wasnt for all of you that kindly helped us we wouldn't even be at this stage.

The amount of support we received from you all is amazing. Even the people wishing us well when we see them saying they follow our story over Facebook etc...

Hopefully we will have good news next year so until then we just need to stay positive.

Again thank you all

From Sarah & Stuart xxxx

Thank you for coming to view our donation page. You are reading this because you saw our story in the Sunday Mirror, Daily Mail Online or Featureworld.com
and agree with us that is an absurd decision that the NHS won't fund 1 round of IVF for us after my cervical cancer caused me to have to a hysterectomy at 26; yet they are willing to fund other unfair causes.

As Stuart has a daughter they will not give us the free round we should be entitled to; even though I do not have any children and it is me who had cancer. My mum has kindly offered to be our surrogate and we are all ready and waiting to go but we need the funding. I honestly thought appealing would change the minds of the NHS but they werent having none of it... so we have to quickly raise the funds as the doctors want to do this before my mum reaches 50; which is in November 2013.

We have not set this page up to ask people for money but we have had people stating they want to help and we thought this would be the best way.

Any amount is appreciated, the fact you are even reading this means so much to us.

The generosity of people so far has touched our hearts already.

We will keep this page up to date with what is happening so you can see what your donation has helped us to acheive.

Thank you so much
Sarah & Stuart

Just wanted to wish you luck on your journey :) I have just set up my own page today as we are going through the same thing, the NHS won't help us with Ivf as I have a child even though my partner doesn't, I had to have both Fallopian tubes removed in emergency surgery due to an ectopic pregnancy, it makes me sad that people that are desperate to be parents have to go through this, I wish you both all the luck in the world xx
