Campaign Story

Hi, my name is Marianne. My husband Alex and I have been trying to conceive for a while now, I was diagnosed with PCOS and hypothyroidism, and Alex deals with male factor infertility. It’s been a journey to conceive, with no end in sight. PCOS causes cysts on the ovaries, insulin resistance, and infertility, unfortunately I deal with all 3. There has been so many medications, failed fertility treatments/cycles, procedures, doctors appointments, bloodwork and more that I’ve had to endure these last 9 months.. We started fertility treatments in September of 2021 and everything so far has been unsuccessful. We have talked about having a family since we started dating, we both knew what we wanted for our futures. Recently, we both had genetic testing done, although rare, both of us carry the same gene called Steroid Resistant Nephrotic Syndrome. To ensure our future children don’t receive this gene, IVF can do genetic testing on the embryos to ensure we don’t pass down this gene, that can cause our children to have kidney problems and a future kidney transplant. Since we have been trying so long, and now that we received this news, we decided to go forth with IVF. Having a fundraiser to help grow our family is probably the last thing I ever saw myself doing, but we would love nothing more than to start a family. We have received so much love and support from family and friends, and we don’t expect anything, but IVF is very expensive.. We appreciate anything, even $5 makes a difference, or a share of our story. Thank you, we couldn’t have gone through this without all the love and support we have received so far. 💛
