Hi Girls,

Just popping in to post this article that I thought some of you may find interesting. As a former member of TTCMA and IVFer I am very happy to see this man win such a prize as he changed the world of those of us who deal or have dealt with infertility.

I can't believe that around 4 million people have been born through the means of IVF! Amazing.

Thanks for sharing this. I heard this on the radio first thing this morning and was very excited about it. It's so great that he is being honored for his very, very valuable contribution that has changed so many lives. I also hope that this recognition may bring a bit more attention to just how common infertility issues are.
