The Nest Egg Foundation has opened their 2018 grant application from now through the end of July. Please share this news! The Nest Egg Foundation is a collaborative Connecticut-based non-profit organization founded to help those struggling with infertility by providing grants of financial assistance. The number of grants given is dependent upon fundraising and is variable. Not all applicants who apply and meet the medical and financial criteria will be awarded a grant. Grants will be valued at no more than $10,000. Financial grants may not be used to reimburse any clinic or medical provider for services that have already been provided. The Center is proud to be a Center of Excellence for this grant.
Why consider sperm cryopreservation? Alison Bartolucci, the Center’s Operational Lab Director, addresses the primary reasons one should consider it and how, much like egg freezing, it can help preserve fertility in the case of a cancer diagnosis.
HuffPost senior editor Anna Almendrala interviewed the Center’s CEO Paul Verrastro on the new laws to make fertility preservation a standard part of cancer treatment.
June is Pride Month, a time to reflect on and celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer history. Since 2006 when The Center for Advanced Reproductive Services (The Center) began tracking LGBTQ patients as a distinct demographic over 300 LGBTQ individuals and couples have been seen and over 175 babies have been born to LGBTQ families. In 1988, The Center was one of the first fertility programs in New England to operate an internal sperm bank which quickly became very popular with the local lesbian community. Since 1983 the Center has been responsible for over 12,000 live births. By applying reasonable matrixes, we would estimate the actual number of babies born to LGBTQ individuals and couples since the beginning of our program to actually exceed 1500!
The Center is an organization committed to equality and diversity. We have been avid supporters of both the New Haven and Hartford Pride celebrations as well as the Hartford Health Gay and Lesbian Collective’s annual One Big Event. We are proud to employ a number openly gay, lesbian and bi-sexual individuals.
