Jenna and Jordan Stine

Their grant application said it all: “We want a baby more than anything. It ultimately comes down to whether or not we can afford IVF.”

Jenna and Jordan Stine were financially and emotionally tapped as 2 weeks after their wedding Jordan was diagnosed with testicular cancer and had to undergo surgery and chemotherapy. Fortunately, he had cryopreserved his sperm, but IVF treatment is costly.

After receiving a Life Grant with the Life Foundation Partner Practice Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago in Gurnee, IL, they completed treatment with Dr. Michelle Catenacci and became pregnant with twins! Easton Scott and Isla Mae were born on July 26, 2017.

Today, Mom and Dad Stine have a different story to tell:

“We are so blessed and cannot love them anymore! We never knew we could love this hard! We wouldn’t be where we are today with these ‘lil ones without you all!”

We want a baby more than anything. It ultimately comes down to whether or not we can afford IVF.
