This is the Murphy's IVF fund. The funds will be used for the IVF procedure costs and related expenses not covered by insurance.

Help us have a family. If you know us (Korye and Brandi), you know we have always wanted to make our family complete with a little girl or boy. But what you may not know is that we have always tried so hard and have exhausted funds for this purpose. We have seen numerous Reproductive endocrinologist for the past 3 years and have tried to have children for most of our marriage. This is the biggest dream we have. In 2009 Brandi was diagnosed with an incurable disease known as PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome or disease) It's a disorder of the entire Endocrine system that increases her risk of Diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and most of all causes infertility. This disease is inherited and can only be controlled by vigorous diet and exercise. It is the main cause of infertility because it imbalances the bodys hormones making it very hard to lose weight and become pregnant. It's a very complex disorder! So after 3 years of fertility care and 9 inseminations, we have been told the only option is IVF (In vitro fertilazation). It has been said that we cannot conceive any other way which is heart breaking as fertility declines after age 30. Unfortunately, this procedure cost around $14,000 plus medication extra $3000 and we been saving for over 3 years for this meanwhile trying naturally. Thankfully, with much research, we have found a very good price elsewhere. We have also tried for grants and many other sources for funding to no avail. Without your help, we may never be able to have a family of our own. Imagine the pain we feel when we see other complete families enjoying movie night, or walks in the park, football games, and chuckee cheese! You may have your blessing/s but we don't, So please help us achieve the dream of a lifetime. We would be ever so grateful for your kindness, love and support. Always remember.... ANYTHING helps!
