To whom it may concern: My daughter and son in law were struggling through years of infertility. While they chose not to discuss their problem with friends or family, my heart was breaking from the terrible frustration of waiting. I can only imagine the suffering that they kept to themselves. Since I have become an avid reader of the fascinating PUAH column in the Jewish Press, I decided to call their US office. The person I spoke to was caring and understanding of my pain, however she encouraged me not to bring the matter into the open with my children (who clearly wished to keep it private). I listened to her words, bore my heartache in silence, and was recently rewarded by blessed news from them. PUAH has a stellar name in the field of infertility in Israel and all over the US. Their scope of knowledge and their depth of caring for every couple going through this torment is unsurpassed. People from Canada, England,and the US temporarily relocate to Israel for Puah's help. They are in the forefront of all the newest treatments and techniques and through the specialists that they work with, (and G-d's Help), have the ability to overturn huge amounts of sorrow into blessing. Their success rate is probably unsurpassed throughout the world.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the faces of so many who are suffering with infertility into celebration.
