Campaign Story

My name is Brooke and my Husband is Justin. We have been married for almost five years and have started down the journey to parenthood. My husband was diagnosed with CF (Cystic Fibrosis) when he was 7 years old. A common sign among males with CF are that they are unable to reproduce naturally. After seeking advice from fertility specialists, we know that our best option for starting a family is through the IVF process. We have already overcome this first obstacle of becoming a family by Justin electing to have a surgery (TESE) in which sperm is extracted and stored until it’s time to create embryos. However, before I am able to receive the fertility treatments and egg extraction surgery, I too must undergo an outpatient procedure (hysteroscopy) to remove a fibroid in my uterus. Not removing the fibroid increases the chance of miscarriage and could possibly lead to health issues later. While the IVF process is expensive itself, there are also outstanding costs before we can even begin. It has been our desire to become parents and we are hopeful to see that happen! We would be more than appreciative for any gift given to assist us on this journey to parenthood!

    Next steps

    We have been amazed at the generosity and support shown to us by friends, family, and complete strangers! Two weeks ago, I successfully had a fibroid removed from my uterus. Now, we are waiting to begin the fertility treatments needed to increase my egg count. From there we are hopeful for a successful egg extraction surgery, embryo creation, then implantation. As long as we are receiving good news, we are excitedly looking towards the next steps! Although we have not hit our target goal, we are so appreciative of those who have donated and shared our story. Please continue to share our story with others in hopes we can fully find our journey to parenthood.

    Getting Started!

    Time seems to be flying by and standing still all together, but We have officially started the IVF cycle! I am on medication to produce a baseline of hormones, and in a couple of weeks I will have some rounds of injections to increase production of eggs. Hoping all goes well and my body reacts as it should, we will have those eggs extracted for embryo creation! I am amazed at the science we have today that makes this process possible for us. I would be lying if I said I was not a little nervous about it all. It is a lot of information to remember and digest. As I’ve said before, we are so, SO thankful to all of you who have reached out with words of kindness or given a donation. With that said, our deadline is being pushed up to December 19th. If you are interested in helping us reach our goal, we have about two weeks until we pay for all costs of this process. We would still like to ask you share our story and we welcome any words of love and encouragement as we get started. Thank you again for all that you’ve done for us!
