Campaign Story

Hi. My name is Jody; my husband is Eric. We are asking for your help to obtain our biggest DREAM, which is to have a child. We met, fell in love, and got married late in life for child-bearing years, but lucky just the same. The problem we face is that I am unable to carry a baby. Many years ago, I had a hysterectomy but could keep my ovaries. During a recent ultrasound, two beautiful eggs were visible. According to my doctor, fertility medications may bless us with a few more, giving us an even greater chance at having a family of our own. In this, I have complete faith.

For older couples especially, fertility issues can be tough to deal with, and asking for help is much the same. And at 51 and 52, time is not on our side.

We are trying to do the treatment, then have my remaining eggs removed and frozen until we can afford IVF and a surrogate to carry the child.

Here is the costs breakdown: Basic IVF treatment: In-Vitro Fertilization Cycle with Gestational Carrier total $22,125 (medication excluded)

Physician Fee $9,650.00

Intended Parent Monitoring (Labs and Ultrasounds) & Oocyte Retrieval. Gestational Carrier Monitoring & Initial Embryo Transfer either Fresh or Frozen Administration Fee ($1050) is paid every cycle, even during a “discounted cycle.”

Gestational Carrier Fee $6,425.00 Due in full when testing begins.

**All fees are due at the start of the treatment process**

Best Choice Anesthesia Fee for egg retrieval $250.00

IVF Medication Fee $4,000-$7,000

Bundles Option IVF with GC (Gestational Carrier) – $39,388

Retrieval/Transfer room & equipment

Surgical Center $2,800.00

Fertility Laboratory $3,000.00

Culture & Fertilization, ICSI, Assisted Hatching, Embryo Cryopreservation 1 Year ($600 per year)

 Surrogate carrier fees are $35,000 per term plus living and expenses and legal fees, a final payment of $35-$50,000 after delivery.

Total of $?


We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking the time to read our story. And we appreciate whatever you can give toward our dream of having a child. Every little bit helps, and this means everything to us.

 In closing, we’d like to wish you a lifetime of happiness, health, and blessings always.

Jody & Eric
