On the Wednesday, April 25th, 2012 broadcast, at 2:30 PM Pacific/5:30PM Eastern women's health advocate and moderator Kim Whittemore @kimwhit chats with Pamela Hirsch, Co-founder of Baby Quest Foundation, for details, click here. Formed in 2011 by Pamela Hirsch and her daughter, Nicole Lawson, Baby Quest is dedicated to helping those who cannot afford the high cost of infertility treatments such as IUI, IVF, and /or surrogacy.
Pamela's journey begins here:
"For nearly three years, I watched my daughter endure countless procedures – successful IVF’s ending in miscarriage, uterine surgeries, and hormone injections. Each attempt ended in heartbreak. Our story has a happy ending, however, because we were able to help with the cost of hiring a surrogate. I think of how fortunate we are each time I set my eyes on our adorable granddaughter. Then one morning late in 2011, I woke up suddenly and had a troubled thought. Suppose we couldn’t have helped Nicole and Josh financially? How would I have dealt with the inability of my daughter to have her own child simply because the procedures were too costly and not covered by insurance? This would not be acceptable. And…..therefore, Baby Quest was born. It is not easy to battle the demon of infertility. We are up against insurance companies who refuse to cover procedures and drug companies whose prices are astronomical. Whereas there are private groups and governmental agencies that deal with adoption and foster children, there are few companies, if any, that fund procedures for physical intervention in pregnancy. If you know someone who has been touched by infertility or if you cannot imagine life without your children or grandchildren, I hope you will support us."
