My husband and I have not been able to conceive a child and with INCIID's help we are going to be able to try IVF. Without this medical procedure we would not be able to try, as the cost of this is so great. Therefore, this nonprofit organization has helped us out immensely! Even if we are not able to get pregnant, it is wonderful knowing that we were able to try and we will not have any regrets or 'what ifs.'

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that I have been able to have peace of mind knowing that I will get a chance to be a parent.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have more doctors able to donate services/medications so that more couples could benefit from this or have to wait less time.

My name is Sara and I am the proud mother of a beautiful little girl named Ella Dawn, born June 9, 2009. If it were not for the INCIID scholarship program, my husband and I would not have been able to achieve our dream of becoming parents. For many couples, including us, IVF is the only chance they will ever be able to create a family. This organization gives hope to so many heart broken couples who wish to conceive but cannot because they aren't able to afford the high cost of IVF treatment. Our family will forever be grateful to INCIID for making our dreams come true.

This organization helps so many infertile couples become parents and does a wonderful job of matching those in need with leading fertility clinics who are willing to donate their services.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't change anything.

INCIID! This organization has been a blessing from the Lord! We were to the point of saying, ok, we will not have children, it's God's plan. We are ok with it, move on. We didn't want to be in further debt to do IVF. Six months later, I heard from INCIID that we were chosen for the scholarship!!! Dec. 2008. We did our fundraising and raise awareness locally with family and friends. Everyone needs to know about INCIID! We are now in West Palm Beach doing testing with the clinic we are matched with, Dr. Roseff! We will get to do IVF in Feb. 2011. It's all unreal to me. It's a dream that we are even here, in Florida with one of the best in the infertility field. We wouldn't have this opportunity had it not been for INCIID! We'll be forever grateful for INCIID. Please consider giving to this organization. Alot of couples do not want to talk about their infertility, but ours is an open book. We know we aren't alone. God is with us, and what a gift to have closure that we get to try everything medically because of INCIID! We hope for a blessing of a baby! :) I want to thank Nancy, Linda, Dr. Roseff and his staff FOREVER! I will never take for granted th gift you are giving us!!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The gift of a lifetime!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give it endless resources for advertising, marketing, assistants for Nancy and Linda!

Struggled with infertility for 13 years. Found this wonderful charity that help women and couples like me with infertility. INCIID offer many revenues of support and information for people going through all stages of infertility. I can not afford IVF and INCIID will now make it possible for me through their scholarship. So thankful to not feel alone during this long hard journey.

Inciid was the first site that showed up online when I was looking for resources and info on infertility in Feb 2003. I was so amazed at the support I received from Inciid and it turned out to be an answer to my prayers. When Inciid announced the Inciid the Heart first national IVF scholarship program in 2004 me and my husband was elated. We was chosen in late 2004 and our beautiful son was born in the late fall of 2005. We are so very grateful because without the program we wouldnt have had the opportunity to fulfill our dream of having a baby.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

By receiving info and support from the website and also being a recipient of the Inciid the Heart program.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

no changes they are amazing!!!!!

INCIID made it possible for me and my husband to have an opportunity to try IVF where otherwise we would not be financially able to. Our scholarship cycle was unsuccessful, but our donating clinic continues to work with us to make our dreams come true, none of which would have been possible without INCIID's help. Not only do they provide a tremendous service to INCIID the Heart scholarship recipients, they provide other services such as current research information, professional-moderated message boards, and infertility support forums. These services are invaluable to me and got me through some of my darkest days dealing with infertility. Before I found INCIID I was in a deep depression and with their help I have found ways to cope and a reason to have hope.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

receiving a scholarship, being an active member of their message boards and volunteering.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None.

My husband and I were recipients of the From the Heart scholarship. The scholarship matched us with an in-vitro fertilization clinic and gave us our best opportunity to have children. Our twins turned 2 this month. Without INCIID I would most likely still be without children. This organization made the difference!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the lives and birth of my two children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

provide greater staffing to allow more infertile couples to be served. I would also move towards additional services other than the website which can be overwhelming for people who don't love working on computers.

I am the moderator of INCIID's General Infertility Message Board, and have done this as a volunteer since the website's inception. As a board certified infertility specialist, I have helped people cope with the disability of infertility for over two decades. What's amazing about INCIID is that it reaches people all over the world, and not just in the U.S. or locally where I'm based (in Florida). So, my responses to members of INCIID can help men and women work through their fertility struggles in all corners of the Earth. Anyone with access to this organization's website can log in and get help, real help, serious help. Feedback I've received from folks who have used INCIID for assistance has been overwhelmingly positive, and I know that I have personally assisted numerous members of INCIID over the years to achieve their most precious goal of becoming and staying pregnant. Although I moderate the infertility board, INCIID also has sections of its website designated for ALL other aspects of fertility (such as recurrent pregnancy loss, male fertility, IVF, advanced reproductive age, etc.). This non-profit organization covers every aspect of topics my patients are concerned with, and INCIID helps men and women every minute of every day in ways that are priceless. ...

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in... receiving e-mails from people all over the world telling me how much INCIID helped them to overcome their hurdles with their disability of infertility. They have thanked me for being part of an organization that has changed their lives forever....

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would... try to do something to make more people out there aware of this amazing organization. INCIID is an invaluable resource that many infertile men and women are often not aware of, and it is a shame that INCIID doesn't have the financial resources available to them for getting the word out to more and more people who WILL benefit from their work.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

Life-changing

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

Definitely

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Nothing could make my experience with INCIID better than what it already is.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

My life is dedicated to helping people have babies, or helping them to understand why they haven't been successful in the past so it can be easier to cope with their struggles. INCIID has allowed me to reach out to others throughout the world, rather than just help people who see me here in Florida, and knowing I've helped someone in another corner of the world gives me a satisfaction that can't be put into words.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

I still volunteer for INCIID, and hope to be able to do so as long as I live. Volunteering for INCIID 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, makes me feel like the reason I've been put here, the reason I exist, and the gifts I've been blessed with to help others, can be fulfilled to their fullest extent.

INCIID is a wonderful organization that gives individuals & couples the chance to have a baby that they financially could not do on their own. INCIID provides scholarships several times a year. I personally was running out of time due to age and costs to persue IVF. INCIID provided me a scholarsip and matched me with one of the best clinics in the US. I am currently traveling to Dallas next week for my first visit and am scheduled for my IVF cycle on Nov 29th.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I received a scholarship and am starting my IVF cycle made possible because of INCIID.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

raise more awareness of the good they do for others and they help needed to keep this organization going.
