Campaign Story

I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2013, and had my right ovary and Fallopian tube removed. I was told that I have to have a mandatory hysterectomy at the age of 40, I am 35. My wife and I started trying our fertility journey in June of 2020 but had to put it on hold because I lost my health insurance. In November of 2020 our journey resumed and I began doing all of the testing and selecting a donor. We had our first IUI on 1/1/21. To date we have had 5 failed IUIs and have been recommended to move on to IVF however it is not covered by my insurance nor can my family afford the cost. Our plan was to do three more IUI rounds but I needed a mental break because I feel like I die a little inside with every negative pregnancy test.

I am a cancer survivor, I am a teacher, I am an Aunt, I am a sister, I am a daughter, and I am a wife but what I want to be most in this world is a mother and only the generosity of other may be my only way to become one.
