This is the Ben and Bobbie Scott In Vitro Fertilization fundraiser. Please open your heart and help give the gift of life.

Dear Family, Friends, and Supporters, Today I am writing to ask you for your help in funding a dream. Ben and I have been trying to conceive for 5 years now naturally and through alternative fertility treatments with no luck. What we thought was just a little bump in the road has turned into a long, emotionally draining, and very expensive journey. We've explored all the more "inexpensive" treatments in hopes of conceiving a baby. Unfortunately, we were not successful. We are at the point now where In Vitro Fertilization is our only option. Some of you may be wondering what In Vitro Fertilization is? It's commonly know 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 know as embryo transfer, which is used to physically place the embryo in the uterus. Unfortunately our medical insurance doesn't cover any of the procedure. Approximately 11 percent of couples who already have a child go on to experience secondary infertility. That's about 4 million families, or about half of all fertility cases. With that said, it's very sad that insurance will not help with this very common condition. 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.
