A.R.T. for Elena

A.R.T. for Elena, BUT not THAT kind of ART! I've set up this fundraising campaign to support my best friend Elena Lai Etcheverry in her longtime quest for motherhood. We all know Elena as the happy-go-lucky firecracker founder of Charity Wings Art Center. Through her charitable organization, she has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for those in need and lifted countless spirits in the process. Now is the time for us to show our appreciation for Elena by raising the funds she needs to pursue Assisted Reproductive Technology (A.R.T.), so she may finally achieve her highest aspiration of bearing a child and being a mom. Elena has openly shared the journey of her heartfelt quest for motherhood on her personal blog: http://thetravelingprincess.blogspot.com and learn about what she does to support people in need by giving them the gift of art at http://charitywings.org/

The costs associated with fertility treatments can be daunting. The estimated cost for Elena's required IVF procedures are in the $20,000 range, accompanied by medications that cost upwards of $8000, and a variety of diagnostic tests in the area of $2000. For this reason, We are reaching out to our treasured community to chip in and spread the word, so that our dear friend Elena can finally attain her greatest goal in life - the blessing of motherhood. She has done so much to help others and now is the time for us to give back! We greatly appreciate your supporting this fundraising campaign, and we are eternally thankful for your donation, no matter the size!
