Campaign Story

Hey everyone!

Kyle and I have been trying to conceive for about 10 months now. Myself being 36, fortunately my OBGYN was proactive and started investigating our infertility 3 months after trying with no success. Test after test and month after month we finally discovered that the issue was likely a semen issue. Even though it is rarely discussed because we live in a society where men are taught to hide these things, this is the cause for 40-50% of all cases of infertility. If more couples were outspoken about these things, we could all feel less shame and stigma around things out of our control. But because of this, it would be a miracle if we were able to conceive without medical intervention.

Thankfully, we have great insurance due to Kyle’s hard work at the company he works for and they are covering a huge portion of this but unfortunately we will still be responsible for roughly $10k. We just paid the fertility clinic $5800 today and will owe for medications, anesthesia, biopsies and testing our insurance didn’t cover and later a couple thousand more for the transfer of the embryos.

As many of you know, we have an 11 year old that Kyle stepped up and adopted this year. He is already a wonderful father and Penney and I both would love for him to get to experience a child from the beginning.

Kyle and I are pretty wonderful and we’re looking to create one of the best souls in the universe together ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Any help we receive is insanely appreciated as we were expecting insurance to actually cover quite a bit more than this.

Your story resonated with me! I came into my step sons life when he was ten and i wish so badly that i would have gotten to experience raising him from day 1. We may or may not have one of our own, but I would hope people would help us if our desire was that strong. I wish a fun and smooth journey of bring life into this world for you both!
