Rebecca and I are trying to raise money to go thru Invetro Fertilization to have a baby. Our insurance won't cover it and we have half of the money we need. Please help us have a baby.

Rebecca and I have been friends for 8 years. We started dating in 2006 and just recently got married in 2009.  We would desperatly love to have a baby. In 2002 Rebecca had Uterin Cancer and had to have a partial hysterectomy. She still has her right overy so we are going to try and use her eggs. We already have a surrogate that will carry our baby for us. We have also gone thru the first stages of testing and have been given the all clear to continue foreward with the next stage.We aren't able to wait much longer due to fact my wife only has her right overy left and it isn't as productive as the doctors would like. Unfortunatly the insurance we have will only cover the testing to diagnose infertility but it will NOT cover the treatment of infertility or the implantation into our surrogate. Since the insurance will not cover the process we are considered to be self pay. In order for us to conitnue and move foreward we will need to pay the full amount upfront, the clinic will NOT accept payments. We have saved up half of what we need but we still need quite a bit of money to make our family grow. In order to save money we have gone down to one car, moved in with my mother and have been pinching pennies since the wedding in October. I am the only boy in my family and it means a lot to me to try and continue on my family name, I don't want it to die with me. We are forever greatful to you all for taking your time to read this and for any help that you give. Please help us make the dream of becoming parents come true.
