A Condition for Many with a Solution for FewInfertility has become a condition for many with an affordable solution for a select few. It is a disease that affects approximately one in eight women. In an April 2009 study, the Center of Disease Control and Prevention cited that 11.8 percent of women between the ages of 15 and 44 encountered problems conceiving. Add to this, the number of singles or same-sex couples who need alternative means to have a child, and you have an ever-growing segment of society that lacks access to affordable care. Medical advances exist, yet their high cost has made them unattainable to so many.
Baby Quest Foundation provides financial assistance through fertility grants to those who cannot afford the high costs of procedures such as IVF (in vitro fertilization), gestational surrogacy, egg and sperm donation, egg freezing, artificial insemination, and embryo donation.
