This is a fundraiser to help us raise money for IVF (in vitro fertilization) so that our dreams of becoming parents can come true.

October 30, 2004 Jeremy and I were married. Late 2005, we decided that we wanted to start a family. We tried for almost two years and were unsuccessful in having a baby. In 2007, the doctor that I was seeing at the time ran a series of many tests. She thought that my fallopian tubes were blocked and told us that if we wanted to have a child it would have to be through IVF or adoption. I decided that I would not settle for a doctor that was just going to stop there without "investigating" and giving me a definite answer. Then in 2010, with the help of a dear friend, I finally found a doctor that would be willing to give me a "without a doubt" answer. Dr. Mameli agreed to do exploratory surgery where he could actually see what was going on. His findings did confirm that both of my fallopian tubes are completely blocked. Even though his findings confirmed what I did not want to hear, Jeremy and I now know 100% what the situation is and we can now start planning the next step in our journey at one day having a baby of our own.
