IVF fund for Canadian Military wife

Hello world. I am a Canadian military serviceman. My wife and I have been trying to create a family for almost 5 years. Recently my wife Jess was diagnosed with infertility and we were told it is virtually impossible to conceive naturally. We lived in Ontario and IVF was covered by our public medical insurance for one try, however before we could get the procedure done, we were posted away and now have to pay out of pocket. The expense is approximately 12 thousand dollars. My wife is such a loving person and will make an amazing mother. She deserves to be a mom and I want to provide her with every opportunity to have a child of her own. I am struggling to raise the funds on my own and someone told me to try an internet funding page. The military will not pay for her to get the treatment because she doesn’t have the “specific” diagnosis that they cover. I am going out on a limb on here because I don't really believe in asking for help from strangers, however my pride is worth nothing compared to the incredible hurt that my wife is going through with the thought of not having a child of our own. We have to come up with the money before we can book the procedure. We are running out of time as the older she gets, the worse her condition is getting and the less successful the procedure's chances are.

We started this process In Ontario and when we got posted here we tried to switch to the fertility clinic here in Moncton however it’s a massive wait list just for a consultation and they told us we will have to start the diagnosis study all over again. Another 2 years of being bounced around. Because of this we aren’t using the New Brunswick clinic and government will not give us the 5000 dollar grant.

Her profile picture is with her and our beautiful nephew born this year. He has become the love of our lives and we are so desperate for a miracle of our own. Your generosity is so greatly appreciated and I hope that it comes back to you 10 fold should you decide to donate to our cause. Thank you so much. Colin and Jess
