Help Rae and Brian Start a Family

Rae & Brian have been trying to start a family for a few years.  They were overjoyed in May when they got pregnant, but that joy quickly dissipated when the pregnancy turned out to be ectopic.  Rae lost the compromised fallopian tube and also discovered the remaining tube is blocked, so their path to parenthood suddenly became much more challenging.  (Short version: they have all the ingredients but can't get them into the oven!)

Happily, many medical tests suggest they are good candidates for IVF - everything looks good except for that pesky blocked tube.  IVF will cost them about $30,000 in total, and insurance does not cover this service.  We are asking for you, their friends and family, to help them realize the dream of having a biological child.  Thank you so much for your love and support on this journey!
