Rovena Frangu and 3 others are organizing this fundraiser.
Greetings, For those of you who do not know me, my name is Rovena. My husband, Aris, and I, have been unsuccessful in achieving our goal of becoming parents. For 5 long years, we have exhausted multiple options with no fruition. We long to be blessed with a child of our own, to feel what other parents do, and to give and receive unconditional love. Our journey has taken us to several clinics and through multiple failed and cancelled IVF cycles; the heartbreak and disappointment being the hardest parts to tackle. The extremely costly medical, prescription, and traveling expenses have caused us to run out of our savings. We are determined and optimistic in reaching our dream, but we must be realistic as well. In order to keep myself honest, I must admit that it is hard for me to reach out and ask for help financially. However, we were presented with an opportunity that might be the answer to our prayers. Our last hope is an investgational treatment, the cost of which seems insurmountable at the moment. We can only receive this treatment outside of the United States, thus it will cost us around $30,000 total for the procedures, travel and additional medical expenses. The first stage treatment is $15,000, and is needed within 2 months. When it is completed, an additional $15,000 is required for another attempt at IVF. We cannot do it alone. I am aware of the road that is ahead of us, if you all make this possible. I am aware that it will not be easy, but we need to continue trying. I feel, in my heart, that we are destined to be parents. We hope that your generosity and kindness will make it possible for us to have a blessed baby and for us to finally feel the love that only a child can bring. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for joining us in this journey. With love, Rovena & Aris
