Answer the Call…Make the Call

Would over $13,000 for IVF help you build your family? How about fund an adoption? It’s within your grasp. But only if you act now.

Join RESOLVE’s “Call to Congress” campaign …today through Thursday… and help get the Family Act enacted and the Adoption Tax Credit expanded and made permanent.

By calling your representatives and using the step-by-step instructions and script provided by RESOLVE, you can make your dream of having a family through IVF or adoption, that much closer to a reality by removing a large financial obstacle. The proposed legislation also offers assistance for the costs of fertility preservation in patients facing cancer, so the loss of affected reproductive organs (or the effects of chemotherapy) will not rob them of their ability to have a biological child once their cancer crisis has passed.

This three day movement, organized by RESOLVE, has been strategically planned to make a noticeable impact on legislators nationwide. Fertility advocates across the entire country are mobilizing forces to join in the effort to get the Family Act passed and the Adoption Tax Credit expanded and made permanent. Fertility patients everywhere, current or former, are being asked to speak up and be heard.

Does this sound like a battle? Well, it is! Will you answer the call…and make the call?

Please click here for more information about this ground-breaking legislation and for easy access links to help you show your support: http://www.resolve.org/get-involved/congressional-call-week-2012.html. Then make the calls…today through Thursday. Thanks.

After you make the call, please tell us here (or on Facebook) that you did it! Please share this information with whomever you are comfortable sharing it with. Together we can make a difference.

Long Island IVF Supports the Family Act

Thanksgiving is over and the December holidays are coming fast. Think back on the beauty of that Thanksgiving feast. More than any other holiday Thanksgiving is a celebration of families, pure and simple.

Just being together as a family, sharing a meal of thankfulness.

But for people suffering from infertility, it can be hard to celebrate anything. It can be hard to feel thankful for the good things when the ache for a child is so overwhelming. For some, Thanksgiving was just the beginning of a long month of painful holiday events which remind them of the families they don’t yet have.

But there is something that can be done to help the 1 in 8 couples suffering from infertility to have their families. It’s called the Family Act. And it needs your immediate attention and support.

Right now important legislation is pending in both the Senate and the House that seeks to provide over $13,000.00 in tax credit assistance to cover the medical costs associated with in vitro fertilization (IVF) for people suffering from infertility.

It also can be used for fertility preservation for patients facing cancer.

Please click on this link for a short, easy-to-read summary of the benefits of this important legislation. Then act on the easy instructions for how to contact your representatives to show your support. All the contact information and links are provided, including the words to use when making contact. http://www.resolve.org/get-involved/about-the-family-act-of-2011-bill.html

You wouldn’t be reading this if infertility hadn’t touched your life in some way. You are either suffering from infertility yourself, previously suffered from it, or know someone who is. We all know someone, even if they haven’t shared their secret pain.

We’ve never been so close to mandating IVF infertility medical assistance through a tax credit before now. But we need your help.

Please act. And please share this information and ask others to act on it. Talk about this at your holiday tables.

We need to be heard. Now. Please check our website and The Fertility Daily blog for information on how you and your family and friends can make a real difference in the passage of this legislation by attending Long Island IVF’s and RESOLVE’s big Town Hall Event on December 18, 2012!
