Things that are Team Palmer

So, Chase and I have been deciding what to do next in our lives as far as children are concerned. We have decided to do Footsteps for Fertility (read below to learn about them).

This is a way that our family and friends can help us when all you have been able to do is pray for us.

Dear Family and Friends,

As many of you may already know, it has been a struggle for us to be able to concieve any children.  Infertility is a difficult challenge to face, but we strive everyday to be strong and continue to love each other through this trial.  The definition of infertility is the inability to get pregnant or carry to term after 12 months.  

After five years, dozens of tests, and thousands of dollars, this August, we will be participating in the Footsteps for Fertility 5k in Salt Lake City, and we are asking for your help.  

Footsteps for Fertility is a charity organization whose focus is to help those who are suffering with infertility.  The cost for infertility treatments or even adoption can quickly exceed tens of thousands of dollars.  The Footsteps for Fertility 5k is a great race to raise awareness of Infertility and the difficulties that couples face.  All money raised from the race goes towards grants of up to $5,000 to eligible couples who participate in the race.  The more people that sign up or donate to the race, the more couples that can benefit.  On top of this, several fertility specialists have generously offered to dontate full IVF cycles.

This is where you come in.

All grants and treatment donations are raffled off after the race.  For each person on your team, you get an entry into the raffle.  The more people we have on our team, the better chance we have to receive one of these great gifts to help us reach our dreams of starting our family.  We know that many of you are out of state, or are unable to participate for various reasons, so there is a “Sleep-in for Fertility” option so you can still help out.

Even if we don’t receive one of the grants or treatments, you will be helping make dreams come true!
