LIIVF Announces Third Early Entry Winner in Free Micro-IVF Contest!

By Tracey Minella

August 13th, 2012 at 3:08 pm

We’re coming down to the home stretch! Less than two weeks left to enter to win a free basic Micro-IVF cycle! Sure, the Grand prize has a face value of almost $4,000.00… but the baby that may result from it would be priceless.

Long Island IVF’s Extreme Family Building Makeover Contest…where the Grand Prize is a Free Micro-IVF cycle… kicked off during National Infertility Awareness Week on April 23, 2012. It runs through August 26, 2012.

To enter the contest for your chance to win a Free Micro-IVF cycle, and other great prizes, go to the April 23, 2012 blog post right here at: http://bit.ly/LHbmQR

Or click on Long Island IVF’s Facebook Page Contest tab to learn more right here: http://on.fb.me/L15L9Z

Each month the essay and video entries that get the most “likes” and/or comments will win an early entry incentive prize. Today’s prize is awarded based on July entries. July was a quiet month for video entries but there’s still time to enter an essay and/or a video. Take your time and send in your best work, but not too much time…as the deadline is 13 days away.

Congratulations to Leslie H. for her essay entry which had the most activity (i.e. comments/replies/likes) of all the July entries. Leslie, please email your full name and address to Lindsay at lmontello@liivf.com so we can send you your prize: a beautiful, hand-made fertility-themed necklace from Hoping Believing Waiting, identical or similar to this one.

Imagine how your life could change if you won a free Micro-IVF cycle? Don’t delay…enter the contest today! Maybe your essay or video will win the early incentive prize for August. Or maybe it will win the Grand Prize. Getting your story out can be therapeutic, as some of our essay entrants have confirmed. But you gotta be in it to win it, as they say.

Last year’s competition was fierce and this year’s promises to be more of the same. Procrastinators and perfectionists often submit at the last minute. And the last minute is approaching, ladies!

Need inspiration? Check out some of the amazingly beautiful and moving videos submitted this and last year, here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=FLSq5aQO1WW7spnS1KiSUW1Q&feature=plcp

An essay or video telling the story of your fertility journey will make a wonderful personal keepsake for the future, whether or not you win the Grand Prize. And, unlike the early incentive prizes, the Grand Prize is awarded by a panel, not by popularity, so you can enter to win right up to the last minute! But why wait?

So grab those keyboards and camcorders and get your story going! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Can I Get an IVF Cycle for Christmas, Santa?

By Tracey Minella

December 12th, 2011 at 8:52 pm

Wasn’t it just yesterday that you had a Bicycle on your Christmas or Hannukah wish list?

There’s probably nothing more challenging to your holiday spirit than undergoing infertility treatment. Except of course, when you can’t afford to undergo the treatment.

Here’s 3 tips to get you closer to that IVF cycle under the tree:

1.    Check with your fertility clinic as to available grant programs or discounted payment packages for IVF.

Long Island IVF and East Coast Fertility (newly merged incase you missed the big news!), offer many different payment options, bundle plans, grant programs and refund programs to help their patients with the financial end of their fertility journey. Like a guidance counselor helps a student, the staff is trained to guide you through the maze of available options when planning to finance your family-building plan. You may have more options than you realize. Check it out.

2.     Enter contests by reputable fertility clinics to win a free or discounted IVF cycle.

As you may expect, these opportunities are hard to come by, but they are out there.  Long Island IVF and East Coast Fertility run several contests, like the weekly Nearly Wordless Wednesday photo caption contest and others, with small prizes ranging from free Starbucks gift cards to larger items like romantic dinner certificates or theater tickets. But sometimes we get really, really generous with our prizes…like with last summer’s Extreme Family-Building Makeover” contest and its Grand Prize of a free Micro-IVF cycle! (The 2010 Micro-IVF contest winner has a little boy now!) So it pays to follow our blog and like us on facebook. You don’t want to miss any great contest announcements!

3.     Have a Fertility Fundraiser on the Internet.

If you are not keeping your infertility secret, this is an option that exists for those with the right mix of friends and families…or faith in the kindness of strangers. Of course, some people you approach may be aghast by the idea. But others are probably so thankful to have a chance to help you. Read about a couple who got pregnant after successfully raising over $8,000.00 for their treatment through IndieGoGo, an online fundraising site,* here: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/21/patients-too-turn-to-the-internet-for-fund-raising/

Have these suggestions been helpful? Do you have any suggestions to add? Have you tried or will you consider any of these tips?

Your next chance to win a free Micro-IVF cycle is coming! I know you’re all excited to hear about East Coast Fertility’s third contest of the summer. We will be kicking it off on Monday morning!

All I will say right now is that you may want to charge the camcorder or FLIP video recorder and be sure it’s in working order. This one’s gonna be very fun and exciting!!! It’s killing me to hold off the details until Monday.

This one will require a bit more effort than the prior two contests, but the prizes will be better. And of course, let’s not lose sight of the one Grand Prize that’ll go to one of the winners of our summer contest series…a free Micro-IVF cycle! Now if a chance to win that…valued at $3,900.00!…isn’t reason enough to enter the contest, I don’t know what is!

Actually, I can share another small detail today. This contest is gonna run all the way til August 28th! It may sound far away, but don’t procrastinate…you know how fast the end of the summer seems to get here!

Prior contest winners are encouraged to enter this one as well!

And speaking of our prior winners…Hey, this is the last call for claiming your prize from June’s “Make Us Gasp” contest. (You know who you are!). Cause ya know, there’s a cute pair of shoes I’ve been eyeing lately and that VISA gift card of yours is burning a hole in my pocket!

While you’re playing around with the camcorder this weekend and brushing up on your videographer skills, I have a thought that will make you smile:

Your baby could be a three minute video away.

See you back here in about 96 hours…
