Footsteps for Fertility Foundation

I told Curtis a few weeks ago that when we become rich I want to pay for someone's IVF cycle.  Infertility is one of the worst things ever.  You never really understand it until you are the one going through it.  I wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy.  

Footsteps for Fertility Foundation is an amazing foundation.  It "is a charitable organization created to raise awareness surrounding infertility, and provide grants for those who require fertility treatments such as: In Vitro Fertilization, Frozen Embryo Transfer, and Intrauterine Insemination through donations and strategic partnerships with fertility clinics."  They had a 5k race last year that raised over $35,000 which resulted in THREE pregnancies, with a total of FIVE babies on the way. 

One of the Board of Directors contacted me last week to share my story.  You can view it here.  They are planning another 5k August 31st, 2013 in Salt Lake City, Utah.   If interested - you can buy tickets off their blog or Facebook page.  Follow their blog at or you can follow them on Facebook at

A recent study indicates that fertility starts to decline at the age of 27 for women. Also, a survey indicates most women a misinformed about how much time they have left on their biological clock.
