Check it out! Here’s the news piece from WBZ-TV, Boston’s CBS news station, on our story of infertility and how my younger age plays a factor. Reporter Christina Hager has put together a really compassionate piece and I’m so honored and grateful that she reached out to me for her story.
You can read the story here online - Infertility doesn’t just affect older women; or just hit play below. The video runs just over two and a half minutes long. (If it doesn’t load, just click the link to the story above and scroll down for the video on WBZ-TV’s website.)
- If you’re visiting my blog from the news piece: welcome! You can get a brief overview of our infertility journey here. I’m happy to talk with folks so don’t hesitate to contact me via email (see my Media page above).
- Correction: Larry and I need to save up $18,000 to begin IVF treatment with donor egg, not $1800, as is mentioned in the piece. Looks like they left off a zero.
- The piece ended mentioning the Family Act, an infertility tax credit bill. You can find out more about the infertility tax credit here – and how you can help by contacting your Senators to ask for their co-sponsorship of this important legislation.

Thanks for tuning in and thank you Christina and WBZ-TV for helping to raise awareness for an important public health issue!
