Put a Baby in My Belly!

Dear Family and Friends,

We have arrived people! It's that time- time to have a baby! Scott and I are very excited about the adventure to come; however, as most of you may know it's not going to be easy. We are faced with the task of undergoing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) which carries a hefty price tag of upwards of $20K. Scott has survived testicular cancer not only once, but twice which unfortunately is what puts us in this situation. Thanks to great doctors and supportive friends and family, Scott was wise enough to freeze his sperm following his first cancer battle at age 23. So, we plan to use it! This one cycle of IVF will be our only attempt at having a child of our own. It's tough to express in words how badly we want a baby. We truly feel that our life will not be complete until we grow our family. We have a lot of love to give and the desire to be exceptional parents. Now, this is where you come in. We set a goal to raise $15K to help kick start this adventure. With IVF the funds must be available immediately. With your generosity and compassion we will embark on our adventure as soon as our goal is reached. No amount is too little. We greatly appreciate any and all donations and look forward to having all of you involved in the creating of our baby! We love you all and thank you for your consideration!
