Powell Fertility Fundraiser

Will and I were married on June 11th of 2011.  I am a teacher and he is a salesman.  We love to camp, go to the beach, watch new movies, and hang out with friends and family.

All Will and I are missing is a family of our own.  Will was in a car accident in 1995 which made him a paraplegic.  Because of his spinal cord injury, he is unable to have kids naturally.  We have to go through IVF to have a family, plus he needs to have a testicular sperm aspiration (TESA).

IVF with TESA, plus all of the meds, cost about 19,000 or so dollars.  Me being a teacher and Will being a salesman, we just don't have that kind of money.  All we want is to be able to complete our family.  Will has been through so much in his life and I just want him to know he can still have a loving wife and children, but I can not do that without your help.  PLEASE help our dreams come true, and donate to our cause!

**UPDATE** Will and I have raised enough money for TESA.  THANK YOU!!! We have applied for a loan for the rest, but I would really love to raise enough money to pay it off early, so I won't have to worry about it when the kids are born.  You know how expensive they can be ;-)  So please keep sharing and donating if you can!

*** UPDATE *** Will and I were not approved for the loan we need and were forced to stop treatment.  We are trying really hard to save and raise the funds, but it is a lot of money.  We really need all the help we can get. please help!
