Bringing Home Baby Oscar

What infertility patients, and people in general, can learn from Hollywood never ceases to amaze me. There are lessons in life being shared all around us. On occasion, those in Hollywood reveal theirs, and through their fame, their wisdom is graciously announced to the world.

During last weekend’s Oscar ceremony, there was one speech, one quote, which stood out amongst the others. It was from none other than fellow Bostonian Ben Affleck. While accepting the award for Best Picture, Ben shared some wisdom he’s learned over the years. “You have to work harder than you think you possibly can. It doesn’t matter how you get knocked down in life because that’s going to happen. All that matters is you have to get up.”

Those of us who desire to build a family understand what it’s like to work harder than we think we can. We push our bodies and spirits beyond the point we ever expected. We do this because we have been knocked down. Most of us choose to fight for our dreams.

Fertility Within Reach helps you fight a good and effective fight. Through our free resources, including step-by-step instructions and coaching, we provide tools to access the infertility benefits needed to treat your condition to help build your family.

So let’s be wise and listen to the life lessons of others and take advantage of the resources available. We can empower ourselves, and like Ben, bring home our dream (you can even call him Oscar).
