Help Make a Ragsdale Baby!

After almost 4 years of trying to have a baby naturally and one unsuccessful attempt at In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), my sister Ashleigh now finds herself struggling with the most extreme classification of Endometriosis (Stage 4). In March she anxiously underwent a surgery to remove endometrial tissue to prepare her body for conception and hopefully preserve her fertility. Following the surgery, she was advised that she and her husband Rodney have a short window to “try again”. The initial phase of IVF is roughly $20,000 and every subsequent embryo transfer is $5,000. I have set a humble goal of $5,000 to try to assist her in the astronomical costs associated with IVF. It is important to note that ALL costs related to IVF must be paid out of pocket; they are not covered by insurance and they cannot be paid on credit or financed.

I am asking for your donations to help my little sister and her husband make a baby.  We are so grateful for every donation, no matter how small. Every dollar is one dollar that they didn’t have before and it will all be used directly for their fertility-related medical bills. Thank you for your consideration…let’s make a baby!
