Campaign Story

We (Kelsey & Ricky) met 6 years ago on a serendipitous friend camping trip and have been together ever since. We have continued to build a wonderful life together in the Bay Area, and our beloved pup Maya joined the family during the 2022 holiday season. While she has filled our hearts in so many ways, the difficulty of infertility over the past year and a half has been present as well.

After a year of trying to start a family on our own, we began consulting fertility support. During this time, fertility issues were identified which led to a Kelsey having a tubal removal surgery. Although the surgery was successful, the doctors let us know that the chances of conceiving naturally were very low. This fall we will be starting IVF treatment to hopefully begin our future family.

We are feeling hopeful and excited looking ahead (and realistically, a little overwhelmed)! Given the financial impact of the IVF process, nearly $35K for the first full IVF cycle, we decided to start a fundraiser to help cover some of the treatment costs. We will begin treatment soon and will keep the fundraiser open through this holiday season and into early next year. We are so grateful for any contribution you consider making on behalf of us and our future baby 🙂
