Campaign Story

Hi my name is Heather and my husband and I would love to have a baby. We got married in 2016 and have had to overcome a lot in our first 5 years of marriage. My husband lost his job and I fell and got a mild traumatic brain injury. I had to go through a couple of surgeries and rehab for a year and a half after the fall. While I was dealing with all of that I also had a lot of pelvic pain which we found out was endometriosis. I had surgery and my right Fallopian tube and ovary were destroyed so they had to be removed.

I was also born with a septate uterus which had to be repaired before they would put me on stronger medication because my uterus might not have supported a pregnancy. And then Covid happened so I had to wait to have an elective surgery! I had that surgery this year so we could continue to move forward on our journey to try to conceive. After I lost my right ovary I stopped ovulating as well. We’ve tried medication which didn’t help and now I’m on injections. With the surgeries and medications things have become expensive and my window for being able to actually get pregnant is rapidly closing, I’m almost 39 and my hormone levels are super low! I’m hoping with a little help we can speed things up and maybe afford IVF!

My husband and I appreciate any help we receive! My stepdaughter is hopeful for a baby brother or sister one day and I hope we can give that to her!
Thank you!
