Conceivable Dreams – The OHIP for IVF Coalition was founded by infertility patients Joanne Horibe, Ashley Bulley and Kerri Stanford. The group decided to use Facebook to unite infertility sufferers and their friends, families and supporters in the hope of having funding reinstated for IVF and ART. Conceivable Dreams is a group of caring people who have joined together to ask the Ontario government to reinstate funding for the treatment of Ontario’s infertile couples.
The Generations of Hope Fertility Assistance Fund was conceived in 2005 as an initiative of the Regional Fertility Program, Calgary. The primary objective of the Fund is to help patients of the Regional fertility program in Calgary who face fertility challenges and who also face serious financial challenges, making assisted reproductive technology through the Regional Fertility Program - particularly In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) - an unaffordable option for them. The Fund has a secondary objective of seeking to raise awareness of the wide-spread occurrence of infertility in Canada, and to increase awareness that the high direct and indirect costs of assisted reproductive technology is not funded by public health care and most private health insurance. The Fund is 100% supported by corporate and individual donations.
