Campaign Story

My name is Lisa and my husband is Alan. We were married in January 2019. We were so excited to get married and start a family. We began fertility treatment right away with medications and finally got in with a fertility specialist. Fast forward a year and she finds a “cyst” in one of my ultrasounds. It ends up being a soft ball size borderline tumor on my Fallopian tube, causing my to lose the tube in surgery. Fast forward another 7 months and after evaluating my remaining tube it is blocked and no good from previous surgeries and scar tissue.

I’ve been struggling with female issues since I can remember. In 2018 I had a diagnostic laparoscopy done and the dr, who I had just been assigned to after my OB of 9 years moved away, sliced my bladder open and sent me home to die. Two days later I am back in the ER with sepsis and such bad pain I can’t even begin to describe it. Needless to say, that was traumatic and life altering.

I was recently told our only option to have biological children is through IVF. My insurance provider does not cover it bc of the plan my employer chose. I don’t know about y’all but we do not have $20,000 laying around! That sure would be nice though. I have applied for a grant through here as well but there are so many couples out there that suffer from infertility, I know we aren’t unique. We just are doing what we can on our end to try and have a family. Any donation, big or small is so very much appreciated.

We are truly blessed.
