Campaign Story

Hey y’all, we’re the Tinsleys! As most of our family and friends know, we’ve been trying to start our family for over five years now and started fertility treatments in April 2019. If you don’t know, Amanda has PCOS, which causes a whole list of symptoms for her to deal with every day. The biggest of which is infertility. PCOS increases the risk of miscarriage three fold, making it even more difficult for her to conceive and carry a baby. In January 2022, we successfully conceived only to lose our baby shortly after. Due to this being our only time conceiving in over five years and the miscarriage, Reproductive Endocrinologists feel we have come to a point where IVF is our only shot (no pun intended because there’s A LOT of medication shots during it) to conceive and carry a baby to full term.

We have contemplated on creating one of these “fundraisers” for a few years now. We didn’t think it was right to ask for help on something so personal and also felt it would be a burden we’d be putting on other people. Instead of Christmas or birthday gifts this year, we’re asking for help in bringing the only thing we both want to life, Baby Tinsley. We know this is a huge ask and please know, you don’t need to give. Your prayers and positive thoughts would mean the world to us, as well!

Below is a breakdown of the cost estimate we were given by CNY Fertility in Syracuse, NY:

* IVF & Standard Stim Medication Bundle: $6,086
* Frozen Transfer (Amanda can’t do a fresh transfer due to PCOS): $995
* Cycle Management & Monitoring: $1,990
* Genetic Testing: $1,800
* One Year Embryo Storage: $600

Total: $11,471

Thank you for being by our side as we keep navigating this storm. We know our rainbow is on the other side and we will see that rainbow someday soon! We love each of you so very much and couldn’t have made it this far without you!
