The Britton's Baby Fundraiser

Help Carl & Nicky fulfill their dream of becoming parents!

Carl & Nicky have been struggling with infertility since May 2010. This fundraiser is designed to give opportunity to their friends and family to show their love and support. They will be starting the emotional and expensive process of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) in January 2015. Donations of any size or amount will be greatly appreciated. If you are unable to contribute financially, send them a card, note, or email to let them know you are thinking of them. We want them to know that they have both financial support and emotional support from all of us. Any and all funds will be used in the IVF process, transfer of cryopreservation of embryos, or the adoption process.

Carl & Nicky's Journey 
(read more on Nicky's blog: http://nickysjourney.weebly.com

May 2010 - Happily married, off birth control and ready to start a family.
January 2011 - Referred to fertility doctor by OBGYN. Semen analysis was abnormal so medication was changed.
April 2011 - Second semen analyis, results were normal. Nicky had an HSG procedure done and it was normal.
Six months of trying naturally.
Due to the emotional strain, they took time off from trying.
July 2012 - Post coital procedure, less than normal but not horrible.
October 2012 - Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), unsuccessful.
November 2012 - Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), unsuccessful.
December 2012 - Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), unsuccessful.
May 2013 - Tornado
Took time off from fertility process to rebuild their home.
June 2014 - Endometriosis surgery
Six months of trying naturally.
What's next: In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) which is expensive and not covered by insurance, costing $15,000.
If that is unsuccessful, they will do 2-3 rounds of transfer cryopreservation of embryos, costing $3,000/each.
If that is unsuccessful, they will adopt. They have already begun the adoption paperwork to expedite the waiting period while they are doing the Infertility treatments.

If there were any two people deserving of a child, it would be Carl & Nicky. Lets show them how much they are truly loved and supported so we may make this journey a little easier for them. Thank you and please share this with anyone you can!
