Helping The Pifers "Grow"


Hello Everyone

I’m one of Tiffany and Zach’s best friends.

Being The Pifer's personal friend and watching in person them struggle through this infertility journey, I've always thought of ways I could help them besides the obvious prayers that have been said. When an actual fertility clinic came into play for The Pifers, I could see the fear in their faces and the hurt in their hearts. This was a step we were all hoping they would never have to take. They are extremely excited but also scared for that next step and chapter in their lives. The cost of an infertility clinic is outrageous. Insurance will not cover a dime!!

Just to put into perspective a general estimate for the clinic is as follows:

The initial consultation can cost up to $900. They will have to pay for ultrasounds ($150) ,blood work ($125) & actual procedures will range from $300-$20,000 as well as shots she will have to take which can cost up to $1000 each round of shots…keep in mind sometimes it takes more than one round.

We have created a Pifer Bean Fundraiser in hopes to help The Pifers through this infertility journey!!

We will be selling wristbands & key chains to help raise money for their upcoming fertility clinic appointment in July. Not only do we want to help the Pifer's but this will also help spread the awareness of infertility. I as a fertile women; couldn't imagine going through what The Pifer's or many of the other infertile ladies are going through.

Tiffany's blog is very inspirational and many love coming to it to read not only her journey, but her very uplifting posts. I want others to look at there struggles, no matter how big or how small they might be, and know that not only are they "Growing in Faith" but they are "Growing closer to God".
