Weʼre raising £15,000 to Private IVF Treatment for Janice to become a mum
- Aberdeen, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
When this all started:
My cousin Janice has been trying for a baby for a number of years, back in 2000 she fell pregnant which resulted in an ectopic pregnancy, despite best efforts from the NHS Janice lost one of her healthy fallopian tubes reducing her chance of falling pregnant by 50% when she was just 18. A few years after this time her long term partner died in a tragic accident, this took time to recover and heal from as Janice lost both her long term love and her budding baby. Although time heals, Janice still carries the pain from this experience but has managed to move her life forward and desperately would love to start her own family.
Janice is now 36 and in a long term relationship with her partner Nelly, they had been going through the process with the NHS to start a program of IVF, the pressure they are putting themselves under is immense. I am setting up this page to give her another chance if her IVF treatment on the NHS fails, also to reduce the stress and pressure on herself during this time so she can relax and not get fixated on her “last chance”, and to give her hope.
Why I want to help:
Janice is a special lady in my life and I want to be able to help her. I am a Mum to a 5 year old daughter, she was the best thing to happen to me, my sister is a mum to a 7 year old and she says the same. Janice’s brothers Robert and Jamie have 6 children between them. Knowing how strongly I feel about being a mother I would love to be able to help Janice in some small way and see her beyond the mother she long to be.
Why this money will help:
I sincerely hope that the current IVF Progamme she is on works. In which case all of this money raised wont be needed and will be returned to you all, however if it doesn’t, given that time is of the essence, this funds would be used to then revert to a further round of IVF treatment. Please help me to help Janice reach this target. I will share this page with her once we have it off to a healthy start!
