Melissa & Austin

Nine months after their wedding, Austin was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.  Four years later and now in remission, Austin enjoys an active life with Melissa, including  scuba diving, running, and biking.  However, in addition to killing the cancer, Austin’s chemo and radiation created the necessity for IVF in order for the couple to conceive.

“While those around us welcome children into their lives, we began to feel punished and somehow unworthy of such a blessing.  Overcoming  cancer gave us  a new lease  on life and  elevated the importance of family, which is why discovering the long-term impact of Austin’s cancer treatment was so devastating.  Baby  Quest has  given  us renewed hope and  reminded us that we are not alone in this struggle.  From the bottom of our hearts, we thank Baby Quest  for helping to give  us a shot at  starting a  family of our own.”

The couple welcomed  twins, William and Amelia,  on Jan. 12, 2016.
