This is the Latosha & Damein Thornton In Vitro Fertilization fundraiser.Please open your hearts and help give the gift of life.
HI my name is Latosha Thornton my husband Damein and I have been trying to conceive for 2 years now. In November 2011 I underwent a laproscoptomy in which my Dr. discovered a large mass surrounding my ovary. That was then removed and my fallopian tube was unblocked, my Dr. thought that would put us on the road to parenthood. Unfortunately it did not turn out to be that simple. After 7 months on Clomid (ovulation induction medication) and ovulation prediction kits still no pregnancy. I was called into his office and notified that we would have to meet with a infertility specialist. It was on to our next life experiencing journey. We went on to meet with the infertility specialist; My husband and I were then informed that our only hope to becoming parents was by In Vitro Fertilization. Some of you may be wondering what is In Vitro Fertilization? It's commonly referred to as IVF. Ivf is the process of fertilization by manually combing an egg and sperm in a laboratory dish. When the Ivf procedure is successful, the process is combined with a procedure known as embryo transfer, which is used to physically place the embryo in the uterus. Unfortunately our medical insurance will not cover any of our procedure. Infertility in women has affected more than 2.1 million women in the world. It’s very sad that medical insurance companies will not help you with this very common medical condition. Some of you may say if you can't afford Ivf how can u afford to raise a child? My husband and I both have pretty good paying jobs, but like a lot of Americans we don't have $11,000.00 plus just laying around. We both would be great parents and are fully capable of caring for and raising a child. Our Ivf treatment along with the cost of my medication must be paid for in full before my Dr. will perform this procedure. Please open your hearts and donate life.
