Campaign Story

My name is Leah, and I am on my journey to pregnancy through fertility treatments. As a thirty-nine-year-old single woman I thought my time for having kids of my own had passed, but recently I decided to pursue a family through fertility treatment. I have already tried less invasive and cost effective treatments. I have undergone 3 IUI cycles without success. Due to my age I have decided that IVF would be the best next step. This has been an emotional and trying journey, but I’ve accepted the fact that if ever there is a time to ask for help, that time is now.

I’m seeking assistance with the financial burden of IVF. My insurance doesn’t cover any fertility treatment costs and I have been paying out of pocket for my treatment up to this point. I would be so grateful if you could help by contributing. Even the smallest amount would mean the world in helping me achieve my future family.

    IVF Puzzle Fundraiser

    For those of you that want to donate, I wanted to have a way to remember your support. I have decided to do a puzzle fundraiser to help with the costs of IVF and here's how it works:

    ~I have purchased a 1000 piece puzzle. Each piece will represent someone who donated to help me on this journey.
    ~Each puzzle piece will be $15
    ~You can choose to buy 1,2,3,5, or 10. There is no limit.
    ~Your name will be written on the back of each piece(s) you represent!
    ~ If you buy more than one or several pieces, I can also include a short message if you would like.

    While making the donation, add the dollar amount that equals the number of pieces ($15/piece) you want and you can add your message in the comment section if you would like.

    Once the puzzle has been completed, I will frame and hang it in the future nursery as a reminder of the love and support that helped me build a family.

    Donations can be sent through:
    The Gift of Parenthood website
    Venmo: @Leah-Ledtje
    PayPal: @LeahLedtje

    Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. I will add your name to the corresponding number of pieces. I appreciate all of you helping me to build a family piece by piece.

Good luck! I hope it works out for you. My wife and I went through the some issues as well. We ended up adopting our nieces kids and while it's tough it's the most rewarding part of life. I hope this works for you.
