Campaign Story

Hello & welcome! 

My guess is that if you’ve made it this far, you likely already know at least a little bit about me. What you may or may not know is my unwavering desire to start a family of my own, as a single mother by choice. I truly believe that one of my life’s purposes is to become a mother. Now, more than ever, I’m ready to build my family through assisted reproductive technology. No family, single mother by choice or not, is able to do it alone. It takes a community!

Under Dr. Check and Dr. Sobel’s guided supervision through The Cooper Institute for Reproductive Hormonal Disorders, and with my ideal donor sperm on ice, I begin fertility treatment in early 2022. This fundraiser was created as a means for those who wish to contribute to the growing costs of fertility treatments, such as testing, medication, embryo creation, as well as storage and shipment fees, to name a few. To date, almost all costs are exclusively out of pocket expenses. 

If you find it in your heart to donate to my fundraising efforts, and finances allow, you can do so through The Gift of Parenthood. Well wishes and general support in the form of thoughts, prayers, words of support and hugs are always welcome!
