Campaign Story

My name is Emily and I carry a Balanced Translocation on chromosome 1 and 4. For those of you that don’t know what a balanced translocation is, it is where part of a chromosome has broken off and reattached in another location. People who carry a balanced translocation are usually healthy. The only time that a problem may arise is when that person tries to have children, because of this balanced translocation, I have an 80% chance of miscarrying each pregnancy and/or have a child with life threatening medical issues. On top of all of this, I also have Factor II gene mutation which makes it even harder to conceive. We started our IVF journey in November of 2021. 6 eggs were retrieved and only 1 embryo came back as chromosomally “normal” and the others I would have miscarried. We decided to try on our very own for a while and have had 2 more miscarriages since. We did not realize how much financial stress and heartache this would put us through. We want to be parents so bad, we never had thought it was going to be this hard.
