IVF donation fund

Vern and I have been trying to create a family for 9 years. We love each other dearly and this has been a dream of ours. Something so natural should come easily. However this has not been the case. We have been through an ectopic pregnancy, multiple miscarriages, three failed IUI attempts, invasive tests, tears, disappointment and hopelessness.

Our next step is to try IVF with a donor egg. Statistics show that using a donor egg has a high success rate resulting in a successful pregnancy.  Unfortunately, this is a very expensive process. The cost of donor egg via IVF is $35,000. We are hopeful to raise half. Thank you for considering a donation to help fulfill my dream of being a mother. Being the oldest child of many siblings, I've always had that maternal instinct and dreamed of one day carrying a child and being a mother. 
With love,
Trina and Vern
