Thank you!  Due to your interest, participation, and support, Fertility Within Reach (FWR) has been able to increase access to infertility health benefits.  There are millions worthy organizations that you could support, so we want to expain how your support of Fertility Within Reach changes lives.

Without Fertility Within Reach, we would still be battling our insurance company which would create additional stress in our dream to start a family. With their help, we’ve achieved one of our most important life goals.”  Dan and Melissa, New York

FWR has coached individuals throughout the United States on how to access infertility health benefits.

I will never forget you. You are a Godsend. The insurance company covered all my costs for the cycle in dispute from last year.” –  Tasha L. in Queens, New York

FWR testified before the MA Division of Insurance that Cryopreservation of Eggs should be a required benefit for infertility.  This has now become a requirement along with other exciting additions.  Working with fertility clinics, FWR created and presented Recommended Guidelines for Oocyte Cryopreservation to insurers. This treatment is now being offered to cancer patients, as well.

I applaud Fertility Within Reach for their inspirational work. It is because of you that individuals continue to have access timely and appropriate reproductive treatment that is leading to more happy and healthy families.  U.S. Senator Edward J. Markey

FWR is working with U.S. Senator Ed Markey’s office to create a Congressional Caucus on Infertility.

“We decided to tackle the issue of assisted reproductive technology and insurance companies head on; when no one else would help us, Fertility Within Reach provided a much needed helping hand. Without their plethora of available information, research, support and guidance, we would not have been as prepared as we were when we met with NC political officials and the media in our fight for recognition & awareness of infertility & women’s reproductive issues.  Thank you for everything, FWR!”- Jamie & Jacob Pursley, Founders – Robert William Foundation

Spanning the U.S. in 2013, FWR was featured  and gave presentations at three infertility patient conferences.

“I am pleased to say that my wife and I have received a letter of approval from my health insurance (with no appeal), and this would not have been possible without the careful guidance and direction from Davina at Fertility Within Reach.”  Matthew & Heather Phillips

FWR conducted research with insurers, employers, and legislators to learn what information was needed to support infertility health benefits and in what format they preferred to receive the information. The result was the creation of The Policymaker’s Guide on Infertility Health Benefits.

We have big plans for 2014.  Your tax-deductible donation to Fertility Within Reach will make a difference in the lives of others.

With your financial support Fertility Within Reach can:

  • Continue to protect and increase access to infertility      health benefits
  • Provide free services to infertility patients and      expand our outreach via FWR Patient Seminars and Webinars
  • Increase our outreach through patient and professional      conferences
  • Print and distribute copies of The Policymaker’s      Guide to Infertility Health Benefits

Please know all the support we receive via volunteering, gifts of any kind, financial donations, or social media support, make a tremendous impact and are appreciated more than words can express.  The work we accomplish is possible due to your generosity.  The amount of your donation doesn’t matter.  Any way you choose to support FWR keeps the progress and the spirit of the organization going.  All types of contributions are priceless!!!

I greatly appreciate your consideration of making a one-time or recurring tax-deductible donation to Fertility Within Reach.  We hope you feel excited in knowing that together, we can make a difference.
