The costs associates with in vitro fertilization (ivf) and other medical treatments for infertility, the fact most insurance companies do not provide coverage for many types of fertility treatments, and the cost of alternatives such as adoption, leaves many couples suffering from infertility with little hope for realizing their dreams of a family.

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.'

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.

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!!!

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.

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.

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 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. ...

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.
