Lauren and Matt
“Having children was always something my husband and I had talked about. But this dream appeared to be far reaching when I had some obstacles in my way. Our will to keep going and to have our baby kept us moving forward towards IVF, our best hope, despite the financial burden and the pre-IVF treatment needed.”
Lauren and Matt learned about the Life Grant program through their fertility nurse who explained how the foundation helps families likes them achieve our goals of growing our family despite financial barriers.
They applied and were “in shock” when they found out they were chosen for a Life Grant with Dr. Charles Miller at Life Foundation Partner Practice, The Advanced IVF Institute in Naperville, IL.
“To know that you no longer have the stress of how are we going to pay for this and instead focus on the process, gave us a sense of peace. At a time of feeling lost, the Life Grant gave us new hope. I can’t thank the Life Foundation enough for their continued support throughout this journey, what a blessing.”
After three years and three IVF cycles, we are excited to announce that Lauren and Matt have welcomed their baby boy, Finn on August 27, 2020.
"Words can not express our gratitude toward this foundation. Not only did they help to provide financial support, but they also connected us with Dr. Charles Miller. Having an outstanding doctor like him helped to make all of this possible."
Lauren and Matt encourage others to never give up on their dreams of becoming a family, whatever that may look like.
"The journey can be long and hard, but with faith, the miracle that can come from it is all worth the wait."
