Campaign Story

Hello, my name is Summer and this is my story and why we are need a little help. I am 35 years old and my husband is 36. We have been together for 7 years but married for 1. I have an 11 year old son that is truly my miracle boy. I was told I would never have children. Ok, I know you’re wondering why. In the year 2005 when I was 19 I found out I was pregnant but quickly what became exciting news turned into a tragedy that I never want to experience again. At 6 weeks I found out that there was no baby but that I indeed had CANCER. Yes that’s right. I wasn’t pregnant after all. From emergency surgeries to blood transfusions and chemotherapy the next 2 years it was awful. Doctors told me many times I would never have a child without taking extreme measures to make it happen because the risk was too high. Fast forward to 2009 I became pregnant (I was terrified) and was very closely monitored by all my physicians. Between lab work and ultrasounds I watched my baby grow by the week for 9 whole months. It was a pretty amazing experience and I have a very healthy 11 year old. He is my miracle baby. Now my husband and I want one of our own. He has helped raise my son the past 7 years and is amazing everyday for doing so he even thinks of him as his son but we would like to add an additional blessing to our family of 3. We have tried and tried and tried. Nothing was working for us so we set out to do all the testing through our doctors and we found out not only am I a risky patient with a not so pretty history but he has a very low sperm count. We completed 2 rounds of IUI that were unsuccessful. Next up is IVF and that’s why I am here. It’s so costly and we just don’t have those funds up front and in Texas, insurance companies do not have to offer or cover fertility treatments. Any support is greatly appreciated.
