A baby for Carl and Victoria (IVF)

33106632_1537397094452132_r.jpegI am requesting donations, shares and prayers for Carl and Victoria Baker.

Carl and Victoria have been trying to have a baby for 6 years. They have been married for 7.  Victoria and Carl have done everything right in their lives. They have worked hard. They bought a home and prepared to start a new family.
At age 21, Victoria had to have an 8 pound endometrioma  removed along with her left ovary and fallopian tube. Since then, she has undergone six more abdominal surgeries. This has caused extensive scarring and adhesions in her lower abdominal cavity. In May, she had her seventh surgery to remove three large endometrial cysts. She already has 3 more endometrial cysts in just 4 months.
Victoria and Carl have been undergoing fertility treatment to try to become pregnant. At her last doctor's appointment, the doctor informed them if she did not get pregnant soon she would lose her only remaining ovary. This would cause her to go into menopause at a very young age, also destroying any chance of her having a baby. When the doctor was asked about cysts and pregnancy he stated "pregnancy would be the best thing for her". Pregnancy would cause her body to produce progesterone which in turn would alleviate the symptoms of endometriosis. 
Unfortunately, the only way Carl and Victoria can become pregnant at this point is In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). This procedure will cost $12,300. Victoria and Carl's insurance will not pay for the procedure.
I am pleading for all of my family and friends to look into their hearts for any donation you can afford to help this young couple. I know they would be eternally grateful for any help they may receive.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart! 
God Bless you all!
