Why We Try

We had another infertility patient tell us, not only did they get their insurer to cover their infertility treatment, but also they are now pregnant.  To us, this is the most wonderful news for several reasons.

First, knowing we did a very small part to help someone reach a goal and fulfill part of their dreams is exciting.  We say small part, because while we shared information, provided input and encouragement, the ultimate action was taken by the patient.  Their choice and stamina made everything possible.

Second, we witnessed individual empowerment.  When we are empowered, we gain a greater sense of confidence and self-esteem with which to approach the challenges in our lives.  This emotion can help us feel stronger and hold onto hope.  Our experience tells us empowerment can also be very contagious!

Third, knowing a much-wanted family is being created, reminds us of the immense love coming to make this world a better place.

Fourth, anytime a patient wins an insurance appeal, we become one-step closer to improving health care coverage for all.  Everyone has a right to this opportunity.

We believe the impossible has possibility.  We see it every day.  Let us tell your story next…..

This blog is dedicated to my daughter, who came after 12 years of trying to build our family.  I followed my heart.  I hope you will to.
