We are Brian and Jeanette. We have been together for 13 years and married for 10 years. Over four years ago we started trying to have a baby and very quickly realized that we were going to need "extra" help conceiving. We started on a now four year infertility process that has included Clomid, IUI with injections, and two failed rounds of IVF. It has been a very exhausting journey both emotionally and financially. We started to look for ways that could help with the cost of going through infertility treatments, and that is when Brian found the Kevin J. Lederer Life Foundation.

They say the third time is a charm, and for us it was! After our third time applying, we felt so blessed when we found out that we were awarded the Life Grant. We were able to pursue the next level in our infertility journey with the Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago and now the excited parents of Graham, who was born in July 2019.

When we found out that the next step was IVF, we thought our dreams were shattered
