Campaign Story

My name is Cassandra and if you’re reading this, I appreciate your time and interest in learning our story. My husband Julian and I met in 2018. As young adults, we dreamed of what our future would look like—careers we enjoy, a strong marriage, a house with a backyard for the dog, and hopefully 2-3 kids (crazy to think of now). While we’ve accomplished the first three things on that list, we have hit an absolute roadblock in starting our family which has turned us to asking for help.

I never thought we’d be to this point. We were naive and thought having a family is easy, everyone does it right? Our world changed in June 2022 when we were diagnosed with PCOS and tubal infertility after a year or so of trying to conceive. We’ve done every test (painfully so), taken every supplement, followed medical professionals and we are still in the same spot we were back then only another year later. Every cent we can spend has been put towards treatments. So far we have done a medicated cycle and 2 IUI (Intrauterine insemination) with countless medications and shots; plus timed cycles surrounding the IUIs for the past few months, all of which has already cost us thousands. It has been brutal and disappointing but we have to keep moving forward.

Once we knew IVF was our best way forward we tried to go through insurance who has unfortunately denied two of our appeals.

After years of trying and the emotional rollercoaster it’s been we are looking for options with higher success, which has lead us to IVF.

This fundraiser is hard for us to make and even harder to put out there. I personally am not someone who asks for help and the overall shame I feel from putting this out there is weighing on me heavy. Truthfully, it is our only choice. IVF is expected to cost us anywhere from $6,000-$18,000 by the time we are done and that is just the medical side of things without medication costs. We are working with CNY to schedule our IVF procedure in the next few months depending on financial standing.

So here we are, two people who love kids and we can’t have any ourselves.. yet. They say it takes a village to raise kids, turns out that it might take us a village to create our child(ren) also.

We have been open about this infertility journey since the beginning and I cannot thank you enough for the amount of prayers, well wishes, encouragement, and kindness you have all given us so far. We have decided to lean into the love and support we’ve received to ask for you to join us in our IVF journey by offering your support financially. All donations will be used for the known and to be determined medical costs for IVF. If you cannot contribute financially, we understand completely and in turn ask that you continue your prayers or well wishes for us.

Thank you for reading our story and for your ongoing support. While being a parent still seems so far away for us, we hope this is a step in the right direction.

Julian and Cassandra
