Campaign Story

Hello everyone,

First off I want to say this is hard for me making a go fund me because I feel guilty needing help. 🥺

Thank you so much for your time and for reading this! It all started back in 2014 when I went in for a yearly exam and they had found cervical cancer. I was terrified and my first thought was “oh my gosh chubby girls won’t look good bald” (I’m on the chubby side) and my best friends first thought was “oh no my bff is going to die!” Luckily I did not need chemo or radiation and was staged at 1b1 vilo glandular adenocarcinoma of the cervix, I ended up having a cold knife conization along with a lymphedectomy. I was on bed rest for 3 months and couldn’t work after surgery. I got so lucky that all my lymph nodes were negative and they were able to get clear margins from my cervix. 7 years later and I’m cancer free completely and done with my cancer screenings!

Fast forward to meeting my husband, we met on plenty of fish and hit it off right away! We found out we lived only a couple miles away from each other. We couldn’t get enough of each other and we ended up getting engaged three months after starting to date, we married a year later on October 24th 2020 during the closures of everything. Our wedding was a small intimate ceremony with just immediate family members in an adorable little church our friend owns!

I was diagnosed with severe PCOS when I was In my early 20’s and due to this I do not ovulate on my own but can ovulate with medication to assist it. Me and my husband tried three unmedicated cycles with tracking which all failed of course. We then sought out a fertility clinic and we tried three cycles with fertility medications, this made me ovulate but none of them took. We then tried three cycles with fertility medication plus trigger shot and again all failed. We then tried four rounds of IUI and all failed too. Every time I get a negative test it breaks my heart even more, I don’t even know how many times I’ve cried my eyes out!

Our clinic told us there is nothing more they can do and our next step is IVF, as you know IVF is expensive and most insurances do not cover it. My insurance does not cover IVF so all is out of pocket. We chose to go with the IVF clinic CNY out of Colorado because it’s a lot cheaper than the clinics in Minnesota, here it’s like $25k-30k and in Colorado it’s $11k and they finance everyone! BUT medications are not included and we don’t have $3030 at the moment. We are getting older and my clocks ticking to have children, I am 33 and my husband is 34.

If anyone can donate to help us get our meds I would be able to gift you a thank you package eof five infertility stickers and an infertility bookmark along with a thank you card, all designed by me. This helps me feel less guilty asking for help, and this way anyone who donates gets a gift!

Just message me once donated or purchase the thank you pack right on my Etsy just search for pastel whisker
