Medical funding for IVF

Since I was a young teen, I have battled painful Endometriosis, which left me with infertility issues. After many surgeries the only way for my husband and I to conceive a child is to do a very costly In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) procedure.

Our first IVF in 2014, which we put all our savings and hope into failed, unfortunately. If that wasn’t hard enough on us, in 2016 we received a call from the fertility clinic telling us the medication they had given us, had been recalled due to having no potency.
We started a class action suit against the drug company in 2016, to at least recover funds for another cycle, but the law suit has drag on and may for many more years.

In the meantime my eggs are ageing and so are we!

There is nothing in the world that we want more than start our own family. We have been working hard and try to save for another round of IVF and have been too proud to ask for any help, but we are afraid that we won’t be able to save enough in time.

That is why we are reaching out for a little bit of help to make our dreams come true.
