314Days to go
Hannah Essary is organizing this fundraiser.
My name is Hannah, I’m 27 years old & I suffer from PCOS.
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition in which the ovaries produce an abnormal amount of androgens, male sex hormones that are usually present in women in small amounts. The name polycystic ovary syndrome describes the numerous small cysts (fluid-filled sacs) that form in the ovaries. PCOS has many symptoms and infertility is unfortunately one of those.
Myself & my husband Kody have been trying to conceive for roughly 6 years now, we have experienced multiple miscarriages, and our last two pregnancies ended in an ectopic.
We experienced our first ectopic pregnancy during the year 2020, which thankfully was caught early and was able to be treated, by an injection of Methotrexate.
We experienced our second ectopic pregnancy in 2021 where was not as lucky, as the first ectopic. I suffered from a tubal rupture, and unfortunately lost my right fallopian tube due to bleeding internally.
We are beyond ready to expand our family, and unfortunately my jobs insurance covers absolutely nothing in the “Infertility” category, and Kody’s job don’t offer insurance at all, so we are left with paying out of pocket, and our next step is IVF.
IVF costs roughly $25,000 to do at most clinics, but we have decided to use a CNY clinic, which is about half price, unfortunately, we have to travel to Georgia from Illinois, and of course stay in Georgia for roughly 5 days for retrieval, and the transfer.
Medications also will have to be paid from pocket, and those average another $3000-$4000.
The smallest donation could help us reach this life goal, or even a simple share of our story could help us get to this goal in life.
Thank you for taking the time to read our story.
Sincerely, Hannah & Kody
