The family & friends of Kelly & Rick Buckle are uniting to raise money to help with IVF treatments due to infertility issues.

The following is the letter written by my friend to ask for help fulfilling their dream to become parents. These two people are near and dear to my heart. I hope you will consider partnering with them.

Dear Friends and Family,

Today I am writing to ask for your help in funding a dream.

Rick and I have been married for over 13 years, and as many of you know, we do not have any children. I am sure you have wondered why, some have asked, and others have even joked and pryed. We have been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, which affects 15% of the infertile population. (2.5 million U.S. couples are diagnosed with infertility every year).

Recently we began our 5th year of trying to conceive a child and have come to a place that no one should be forced to face. We desperately want to try IVF through Shady Grove Fertility Center in Annapolis, MD. Unfortunately, we do not have insurance coverage for this expensive yet effective option to help us overcome what has been a difficult journey. (Couples have a 70% chance of conceiving with each IVF cycle compared to the normal 20-30% with natural methods per month.)

Praise God, approximately 25% of the cost of this treatment has already been covered by a grant that we were privileged to receive from the Tinina Q. Cade Foundation (! We are one of only 9 couples out of 207 applicants awarded with the Family Building Grant by the foundation this year. We are thrilled to be partnering with the Cade Foundation! Through their help we have realized we can have hope, knowing that this financial burden doesn’t have to stop our dream of having children of our own.

Please consider partnering with us in this life changing endeavor. Your contribution is greatly appreciated more than words can express. Every dollar we raise takes us one step closer to holding a precious child and blessing others who are dreaming of the same thing.

Thank you for this opportunity to share our heart about our journey in growing our family!
