This is Joy's Baby2Be fund. The money will be used to pay the yearly storage fee for the eggs she harvested before starting chemotherapy.

Dear friends and family,

Most of you know I have been battling breast cancer for over a year - and I've been blessed with a strong recovery. I am SO grateful for all the prayers and support I've gotten as I go through this.

The one thing I have always desired is to have a child. I played with baby dolls as a kid - not Barbie. They even had their own crib. When I got the diagnosis, I was more devastated by the news that it was likely the chemo would make it that I couldn't have kids, than the fight I would have to endure to beat cancer. So I prayed, and (no surprise) God, came through.

Right before I started chemo-therapy I was able to do a round of "egg harvesting" so that it would be possible to still have children despite the chemo damage. I was able to get a partial grant for that (again, God's blessing) and my mom actually took out a loan to cover the rest. The payment that was made at that time covered the procedure and a year of storing the eggs.

With all that has been going with my treatment that year has flown by and I now need to pay a $1000.00 for another year of storage, and I have had no idea how to cover it. My parents are already paying for my living expenses, and this is something that is not covered at all by my insurance.

So I've been praying and what I've been getting is "Ask, believing, and you shall receive, seek and you shall find." I felt frustrated by that, and finally just said, "Ask WHO?" A few days later, I learned about Give Forward.

It is sometimes hard for me to ask for things...but, I know God didn't bring me this far to drop me. I KNOW I'm going to have my child when this is all over. So, I am asking in faith, knowing it is not a accident that I only heard of this organization a few days ago.

If you can give something towards this, I am grateful, and if you can't, I am still grateful, because I have had such amazing support and encouragement: from family, friends I've met, and FB friends whom I've played FB games with. Your prayers have carried me through, and I ask that even if you can't give, to hold me in prayer that the eggs I've saved will continue to be safely stored until I am well and secure enough to move forward in having them fertilized and become the miracle of my baby born healthy and whole.

With God all things are possible.

Love & Light,
Joy
