“When we discovered we had infertility issues, it was truly devastating. We never imagined we would have complications in having children. We already had many ideas and plans for how we would raise our children and had such high hopes. We thought we could fix the problem by changing our lifestyle, diet, exercise routine, etc. Although all those changes were positive for our lives, it did not bring us, children. As time passed, we accepted that we needed medical assistance which was financially challenging for us. We were lucky to find a JFF flyer in a coffee shop and made the call. We were received warmly by Elana and the company and we did not feel alone anymore. JFF provided us with a generous grant and a wealth of resources and emotional support. We are forever in their debt.”
