Campaign Story

For those that don’t know me, my name is Shaquana Scruggs. My biggest dream in life is to become a mother, and I’ve been trying for 17 years. Jan 06th 2017, I was diagnosed with proximal tubal blockage on both fallopian tubes which has made trying to conceive a little harder. March 2017, I started my IVF (in vitro fertilization) journey. Insurance only covers so much when it comes to IVF and, some doesn’t cover any at all. I have went through 4 IVF cycles, 2 tubal cannulations, and multiple embryo transfers. My last embryo transfer, Dec 14th, was a success. Now, the moment a woman becomes pregnant, her and her child create a special bond, something only the mother can experience. Because of this, I knew in my heart something was not right. Jan 5th 2021, I lost my babies at 6 weeks. The ER was very scary and heartbreaking. They are not well aware of IVF patients and treated me as if it didn’t matter, but I’m not giving up. I’m going to try again and, this is where I need your help! As I prepare myself for another IVF cycle, insurance will only cover so much which leaves me with out of pocket costs for medications and procedures. The fertility clinic is in Cary NC. The doctors and nurses have been amazing while being under their care. The funds raised will cover medications, procedures and cost of recovering. So far I have spent over 30K out of pocket since starting the process. I have been open with my infertility and have had the chance to speak on infertility & miscarriage during an open interview. During my journey, I have helped many women and men open up more to speak up on what is considered the “Silent Topic

Any help to making my dream become a reality would be greatly appreciated❤️
