Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
During National Fertility Awareness Week I'm going to be writing a poem a day on some of the themes of fertility to raise funds for Fertility Network U.K. (FNUK). You'll see the poems on my Facebook page, Twitter - @withoutissue and my blog about living with childlessness - https://withoutissue.live

Why do I support FNUK?
One day 15 years ago, during our final cycle of fertility treatment, I felt desperate. What if this failed? How could I go on? Somewhere I had seen information about Fertility Network UK and their helpline and I called. To have someone just listen, to tell me I wasn't being stupid/overreacting/feeling sad for no reason was such a relief. To know I wasn't alone. To be told I could call again - as often as I wanted - helped me get through a very dark time.
We emerged from 5 years of treatment without a child but FNUK have always been there. I have a wonderful, fulfilled life even though we don't have the children we hoped for. Now I volunteer for FNUK - and they look after their volunteers as well as they do their members.
Thank you my friends.
