Hoping For The Miracle Of life

My name is Jacob, I have come to GoFundMe in search of help for my oldest sister Corinne. Corinne is 34 years old and has spent her life helping others in need. She currently is working in the medical field and has spent years working hospice care as well. Her strength and love for others has always amazed me. The way she can devote such selfless care not only for the ones she loves but to all people in need. Probably close to ten years ago now Corinne was diagnosed with a severe case of Endometriosis. A disorder in which tissue that normally lines the uterus grows outside the uterus. She has endured everything from painful monthly shots to surgery to several medicines. With all the efforts she has as of recently been told she will have to do In Vitro Fertilization in hopes of conceiving. As a father and watching Corinne with my children and every baby that’s ever in the same room I know she would be an amazing mother. Not to mention how much she deserves to be blessed with Life’s Greatest Miracle! So here I am asking and praying for any assistance I can find for my sister Corinne. I hope you can find it in your hearts to help her with anything you might be able to spare. I know she would be eternally grateful. Now I will leave you with some of her own words I asked her to share with us all. Thank you and God Bless! “I've wanted nothing more in the world then to have kids...from the time I was a child I was in love with babies and always dreamed of one day having my own. I've played an important role in many children's lives, I've helped raise a couple babies...but never been able to have my own...i long for a child to look at me with those eyes as they look at their mommies, that special bond between a mother and child. A little person who is half me and half the love of my life. 3 surgies later, many different fertility medications, numerous herbal medications...ive tried everything under the sun. ONLY to recently be given the heart crushing news that I have endometriosis in my tubes, and my only chance to successfully become pregnant is by doing IVF. The Dr. Made it sound so easy, so promising..that is until I had my financial consult...$15,250 and that's not including the medications, the blood work, the ultrasounds, and the genetic testing he said I would need given mine and my fiancees age. To make the news even more crushing that $15,250 has to be paid upfront, no payment plans offered, no insurance coverage. How does one do such a thing?? I am just so heartbroken. I work a full time job in a hospital, my fiancee also works full time and is in the army, how is there no assistance to individulas struggling to start a family.i take care of people in the hospital, I've taken care of people who were dying while working in hospice. I devote my life to helping others in need. With a heart full of compassion. All I want is to be able to bring life into this world”
