Hi everyone some of you may know me and some may not. I am Deborah and I am starting this GoFundMe for my best friend Camille one of the most caring and generous people I know. She is someone who would drop everything to help the next person in need. I want to return the same favor. My dearest friends, Camille and Tommy have been facing the most painful, frustrating, soul-crushing battle of infertility for 10 years. Camille grieved the loss of her first child which she never held, and now the ones that they may never have. They have lived a journey filled with so many disappointments and losses, so I'm hoping that the world can join together to bring hope and encouragement to this family.
I invite you to read their story of an incredible couple and join me in supporting them to bring life into this world:
This might be my last shot at being a mom. I feel that empty spot in my life that I missed out on because of life circumstances. I've been pregnant before and knowing that I wasn't able to bring a pregnancy to term hurts. I feel like I've been betrayed by my body so many times. I wish I can infinitely try like others can but I can't. I need help and I'm hoping that you see my plight and can maybe help me out. I've already had an unsuccessful run at the fertility clinic, which by the way have been great, I go to New Hope Fertility Clinic. It's hard knowing that your body can't do what it's meant to do. I don't have Fallopian tubes (the expressway for new life to get its start). I have had three ectopic pregnancies that resulted in emergency room visits and emergency surgeries to save my life because of them.
A couple of years ago, I had yet another visit to the emergency room. I had been bleeding for over a month and in so much pain. I was so weak from all the blood loss I didn't have a choice, I couldn't go through another day of pain. Most people who know me know I am that person that will carry on until the wheels fall off, the doctors said I narrowly missed a blood transfusion. Another medical hurdle was thrown my way, my uterine lining has become abnormally thick and is very painful, adding a large cyst to the mix. The doctors have now suggested that if I want the pain to go away I have to start thinking about having a hysterectomy. My heart broke. I kept seeing my attempts of saving money and trying to keep payments to the clinic going swirling down a rabbit hole. I saw my chances of having my own family start to fade away and started to see myself start to fade away with that dream. As many might know the fertility clinic experience is not an inexpensive route and I have reached the end of my financial resources.
I just want another chance and I'm hoping you all can help me get it. I keep myself in almost daily pain hoping for that chance. I am looking to you, my family, my friends, and all you opened minded strangers, all you good and generous people that might help me see my chance happen. This has been a real struggle for me, I have been so private about all of this and I'm taking a leap of faith and putting it in your hand that you see my struggle and are able and willing to help me. I want to go to the next chapter in my life and I would love it to be with a healthy and happy bundle of joy of my own.
