Campaign Story

Jason and Cheyanne would love to start a family but unfortunately due to PCOS, a previous ectopic pregnancy that led to a ruptured fallopian tube, and male factor infertility they have been unsuccessful after various interventions.

Recently they underwent in-vitro fertilization which is funded for one round in Ontario through OHIP. Due to a functional ovarian cyst our cycle failed with no eggs fertilized. While the cyst can be resolved before entering another round of IVF, they no longer have any OHIP coverage for IVF. OHIP also does not cover medication. For one cycle of IVF it cost over 6000 in meds. As they are a new couple, Cheyanne recently left academia after ten years, paying out of pocket for another IVF cycle which can cost anywhere from 13-20k at their local fertility clinic is a big burden they are trying to navigate.

Those who know the couple can attest to how devoted Cheyanne is to her nieces and nephews, as well as the work and studies she has undertaken to make a positive impact on the community, particularly the Indigenous community. Jason lost his first wife due to cancer and after that grief and rebuilding his life, is trying to create the family he thought he would never get.

Anything helps and would be greatly appreciated towards costs we will incur during another round of IVF or other family planning avenues.
