Infertility Awareness Week 2015

May 19-28, 2015, is Canadian Infertility Awareness Week (CIAW). This important week  is a time for those who have experienced infertility, their doctors, friends and family to come together and show support for others who are struggling with fertility through conversation and open dialogue. It also provides an opportunity to educate the general public on matters of fertility health and the prevalence of infertility in our society.

In the past few days, it has been extremely encouraging to see the willingness of people to speak candidly about their infertility journeys, as well as the media’s desire to listen and share these stories across the country. We are proud to be a part of this discussion, and sincerely hope that by speaking out and sharing knowledge we will be able to reach anyone who has questions, concerns or hesitations about their own fertility.

We would like to say a special thank-you to patients, past and present, who volunteered to talk about their journey with media; this is a brave thing to do and we are certain that your openness will inspire and provide strength to others. We would also like to thank the various media outlets we spoke with who helped shine a light on this growing awareness movement.

As Canadian Infertility Awareness Week draws to a close, there is one more story we would like to share: Anna’s story. Anna is a young woman who chose to take control of her fertility future when she was met with an unexpected challenge. We hope her story inspires and provides hope to others walking in her shoes:
