My wife and I are raising money to cover the costs of an IUI procedure in hopes of finally becoming mothers. We have lovingly dubbed this mission Operation Nerdlet, as we are both nerds who wish to create our own tiny nerd!

Despite having health insurance, the company will cover nothing related to helping me conceive. I have undergone many tests and appointments and painful procedures and have been diagnosed with both PCOS and a blocked right fallopian tube, which I will soon have surgery to open. We have also endured years of mistreatment by a doctor who lied to us and offered me almost no solutions and two unexplained early miscarriages as well. After trying everything else we possibly could on our own, our options have dwindled. We want to finally end this long and painful chapter and begin the grand adventure that is parenthood. This is a dream that is now out of reach without the generosity and selflessness of others.

Along the way, I have devoted myself to helping countless women by educating and supporting them through their own trying to conceive journeys and raising awareness to the struggles of infertility. I hope to continue doing so throughout this experience too.
