Losing my Fiancé & Fighting Rights to Start Family

Hi there, my name is Ellie. I am 22 years old, and have sadly lost my partner of 3 years.
Myles had sadly had a very tough health journey from the age of 20. First starting with a diagnosis of Leukemia, following on to a Bone Marrow transplant, Necrosis in both hips, Sepsis twice, and sadly suddenly passing away.

Myles passed away on September 18th 2021, our 1 year engagement anniversary.
Myself and Myles were in the process of getting Married and had started IVF treatment to having a baby. However due to COVID-19, both of these had got pushed back quite a bit.
Sadly, since Myles has passed away, I am now facing a very long and costly court case to win legality over Myles’ stored semen, something that should be rightly mine. Our one wish was to have a family. Unfortunately Myles never signed over ownership of his stored semen because not only did we not know about this form,  death was something that was never anticipated.

Not only have I lost the love of my life; the man who I built a life with, planned to marry and carry his children, I am at the brink of losing the chance to never even have our children.

It has been estimated that I will need to pay roughly £30,000 - £60,000, in order to take this to court and attempt to win. I have a chance, however I am desperately in need of raising the funds now at this point. I have so far used all of our savings that Myles had left to me, the money we had aside to build our future with, to use for our children.  
I am please asking for any kind of help or donation to assist me in this process. Anything is a difference, even if that is a share or a donation.
Thank you for taking the time to read.
UPDATE 26/10/22
Thank you to everyone who has been sharing and donating. You will never know how much it means to us. These past few days I have been completely and solely occupied with gathering up every single piece of evidence to show how much me and Myles wanted children, and how we were already involved in the early stages of IVF. To every person who knew us personally, you will know that this was our one wish.
