A baby with my deceased fiancé

$11,600 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 143 people in 23 months
Stephanie Lucas  TUCSON, AZ
My fiancé Cameron was in a motorcycle accident on Friday and was declared brain dead today at 12:30. We wanted children very much and my family and his family and I have all decided we'd love to still make this happen. This baby would be truly loved and surrounded by an amazing family. Unfortunately the cost to extract the sperm is $6,000 that must be paid upfront by tomorrow evening...an amount that we won't be able to come up with on our own. Especially with all the expense of Cameron's hospital stay and funeral and everything else associated with his devastating passing. In leu of flowers or gifts to honor Cameron, we're asking you to make a donation to actually bring a part of Cameron, the amazing, handsome, silly, guy that I loved with my whole heart back to life!

UPDATE: Friends, family, and anonymous donors... Our story will be shared on “The Doctors” medical talk show on Monday, January 26th with an exclusive consultation filmed with my fertility specialist at his clinic! And Dr. Jain has a special surprise to share with me on stage! Tears were building up the entire time I was talking about Cameron in the interviews… I brought Cameron’s blue ribbon with me (the same ribbon our families wore at his memorial service) to give me comfort while I wore it and to reminisce about him. I’m so grateful to the producer’s at The Doctors for reaching out to me with this opportunity to share a very personal part of my life with everyone!

Today was so hard, we went to the funeral home to pick an urn, then to the accident site, then to Cameron's to go through his things and pick out what we wanted to keep.

By the time we got to Cameron's, we were spent. We started to go through his clothes and found that each of his favorite things brought back a memory that made us laugh or smile.

We got to hear more about his business, the Sweet Garlic Company ( http://www.sweetgarliccompany.com), which was his passion and reason for moving to California. We got to spend some quality time with his roommate and business partners and we got to sit in his favorite chair, lay on his bed and experience the world he was living in.

After all the stories were shared and laundry was sorted, we were about to leave and Cameron's mom said, one more look. We tried to convince her otherwise but she was determined. And we are so glad, because buried in Cameron's laundry was a jersey, a Seahawks jersey. But not just any jersey, a Marshawn Lynch jersey in size 0-3 months. Something we bought last christmas for our future baby.

Cameron only brought a few things with him to California, and one of the things he brought was this jersey. Our jaws dropped and then we all smiled and looked up to the heavens to say - we hear you Cameron, and everyone has come together to make this happen.

I will never be able to say it enough - thank you for your support. It is everything.

Hello All,

I am beyond grateful. Today we fed-ex'd a check for $6,000 to the doctor who will fly up to do the procedure for us. I was feeling so defeated when I found out the procedure would be so expensive and the money had to be paid upfront. I had lost not just my fiance and my future, but my future family too.

It was incredible watching the campaign go, we sat together around the table, refreshing the page, sending up prayers of gratitude and crying tears of joy.

The additional funds will help support Cameron's family with medical costs and the service and if we have any left over it will go to the second part of the process, to help with the fertility treatments.

Your support has given the gift of life to me and to my family - it has given me the chance to continue the dream that Cameron and I had together. I could never express my gratitude in words. Thank you is not enough. May you all be as blessed in your lifetime as I have been from your support.

Oh my gosh. No words can express what just happened. Our hearts are broken to pieces but the void is so full of love. We are all sitting here sobbing - this time with joy. Over $7,000 in 1 hour - over 300 shares?! Wow. No words. Just LOVE. SO much, love.
Please know any extra funds will go to Cameron's service and medical expenses.
Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, from the depths of our souls for picking up our broken pieces and carrying them for us until time can heal. God is good!!

I know I don't know you Stephanie, but I knew Cameron in high school and a little while after. He is an amazing person and touched so many people. I'm sure through this, you can see just a little bit about the positive effect he had on people as well as how many people are here to support you unconditionally through this devastating/joyous time. I have added you on facebook because I would like to continue and see the process and progress you are going through, and also remember how many people you have behind you for support at moments when you feel just a little bit too weak. We all loved Cam, and are excited for this next journey for all of you. Xoxo

I really have no words to explain this but I will try... If you had asked me last week if someone should harvest sperm from their loved one I would not even have begun to know to answer such a question... And the truth is my opinion is irrelevant as are any others you may hear in the wake of having made this decision for yourself - so I pray that you will stand confident. I want you to know I woke up yesterday and felt in my heart that you were to have Cameron's child... I prayed all day about it ! Before going to bed I opened my Facebook & saw this and sat in shock! By that time all the money you needed had been raised and then some. All I can say is that God is the author of peace and he is writing a unique story through this... I believe that through his own struggles Cameron found lasting peace in his relationship with Jesus and that my friends is what leaving a legacy is all about!
