Toni's In Vitro (IVF) Journey
Recently they have received news that the only way for them to conceive and possibly have children is through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Toni has had a few surgeries to try and reverse this, however the only solution left is IVF. Toni is an amazing woman and if anyone deserves to be a mother, it is her. She is a wonderful Step-Mom, Aunt, and God Mother to so many children that are constantly around her. And yet, she is unable to have her own.
The struggle that my brother and Toni are having is the amount of money that the In Vitro procedure is going to cost. They have been told that the complex series of procedures will cost a minimum of $20,000.
Toni is much too selfless to think about starting a funding campaign to help her with this struggle. So we are taking it upon ourselves to help her!
If you have had the pleasure of meeting Toni and spending any time with her, you will know what an amazing person she really is. She is one of the most unselfish and caring people that I have ever met. If there was one thing that Toni was born to do, it was be the world's greatest mother!
Our ultimate goal is to raise $20,000 for Toni and Shane, to cover the bare minimum for their procedure. We are aiming to hit our goal by 7/31/2016! Please help us in our mission to help Toni have a child! Any amount that you can contribute would be a great help towards achieving this amazing goal and we cannot thank you enough for your contribution!
Thank you so much for your time :)
-Toni and Shane (and Keller)
Shane and I are at a loss for words.....tonight is the first time that we have actually sat down together and looked at this page....and we are overwhelmed. We are so blessed to have friends and family like all of you who are willing to give money, support, prayer, anything and everything that our wonderful friends have given- Thank you. Thank you so much. Earlier today we visited the doctor, and unbelievably, it looks like we will be starting the process in around a month. Growing our family has been something that we have been trying to do and hoping for for years, almost 7 years now. The fact that we are about to begin IVF is because of all of your contributions. We feel thankful, we feel grateful, we feel...overwhelmed, really, overwhelmed. Thank you all so much, for giving and helping us make our family bigger. We are very lucky people to have all of you in our lives. Our hearts are full of love and gratitude and we look forward to the rest of this journey. Oh yeah and keep your fingers crossed and we will keep you posted :)
We are about 1 month in and we're right at $7,500 which is amazing!!
While Shane and Toni have yet to look on here and see how much we have been able to raise for them thus far, they are so thankful for all of the positive and loving messages that everyone has sent their way!
Our goal is to hit $20k by July 31st..that gives us just under 2 weeks to raise about $12,500 which I know we can do!!
If you haven't yet, please share this page on Facebook or with anyone that you think may want to help out our favorite couple!
Again, thank you all so much for everything that you have done thus far, and if you can, please help us get to our goal by the end of the month!
Have a great day! :)
Thank you all again for the continued support and I will keep everyone updated as we move forward! :)
