Campaign Story

My name is Angela. I was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2010 and ultimately had to have a partial hysterectomy in 2014, leaving me unable to carry a child. That’s the same year I met the love of my life, Sam. Sam and I were fortunate enough to have 5 embryos created and cryopreserved in June of 2020. In that same month, we met our surrogate and she could not be more perfect! It’s been a long road to get to where we are now. If all goes as planned, we should be heading to Colorado later in April for the embryo transfer.

The cost of the journey so far is $26,771 and we have at least that much more to go. We are asking you to help us on this new path by donating to our fundraiser. We are seeking assistance with the financial burden of IVF and surrogacy, and we would be forever grateful if you could help. Even $5 would mean the world to us and help us grow our future family. For those who have already contributed, thank you so very much!

I have been trying to raise money in many ways to help fund this journey; from crocheting pot holders and knitting chunky baby blankets, to freelance web and graphic design, to opening up our home as AirBnB hosts. For each donation we receive over $10, I will send you a pot holder as a thank you. ❤️

We pray we are able to welcome a baby next January. And will be blessed to have the option for a sibling journey in the near future.
