Alberta has proved itself as a caring, and compassionate place to live during the floods and rebuilding. I am proud to say I have been born and raised in Alberta, and love that I can say the same thing for my children.
Next week I am taking my kids to the Generations of Hope Family Day. Everyone is welcome to attend, its a free family event with face painters, carnival games, stage shows, a petting zoo, and bouncy houses. Its fun for the entire family, and the goal is to raise support and awareness for the Generations of Hope Fertility Assistance Fund. The Generations of Hope Fertility Assistance Fund is hosting their Family Fun Day at Canada Olympic Park on September 14, 2013 from 11a.m.- 3 p.m. rain or shine.
I am a strong believer in public funding for in vitro fertilization is the right thing to do for Alberta, as shown in my confessions about struggling with infertility, paying for IVF, and others struggles with trying to conceive. This cause makes sense for the families who live here in Alberta as well as financial sense for the government health system.
I need your help.
There was a goal set out for 25,000 signatures to the petition by mid september. Right now we are 5,000 signatures short of that goal. Whether or not you personally are affected, chances are you know quite a few people that would benefit from this change being made in our health care system. A lot of couples aren’t as willing to discuss it, but I know there are many people who are saving, working, and hoping to start a family of their own. I in 6 people struggle with infertility.
