PRLog - Jul. 13, 2010 - HRC Fertility, (formerly Huntington Reproductive Center) recently had two patients win an essay contest sponsored by Ferring Pharmaceuticals in which they outlined their personal struggles with infertility.  Nancy Cantos and Lisa R. Tweedy, both patients of HRC’s Dr. Jane Frederick, M.D. decided to share their stories for Ferring’s My Little Miracle Essay Contest.  They each received $3,000 in education funds for their entries.

Ferring asked patients to submit essays on the topic If I Knew Then What I Know Now, hoping their experiences with infertility would provide advice and hope to others facing reproductive challenges. Both Ms. Cantos and Ms. Tweedy described journeys to parenthood that were physically and emotionally difficult.  However, each finally achieved success due to the dedication and cutting-edge treatment of Dr. Frederick.

“Nancy and Lisa both displayed remarkable perseverance in their quests to become mothers; their stories illustrate the anguish associated with infertility, as well as technology’s ability to help them get pregnant,” said Jane Frederick, M.D., HRC Fertility. “We were honored to provide the innovative treatments that helped them create their beautiful children.”

Nancy Cantos wrote “The Bumpy Road” which encourages all couples who yearn for children to remain optimistic and work with positive people. Her own journey spanned ten long years, during which she and her husband were both diagnosed with several medical conditions preventing pregnancy.  They felt the need to keep their struggle private which wasn’t always easy as they coped with the emotional pain that accompanies fertility treatments.

After meeting Dr. Frederick, Nancy and her husband were hopeful. They became pregnant, and now have three children: Caitlin, who will soon be six years old, and twins Julia and Lauren, age three.

Lisa R. Tweedy’s “Beyond Blessings” tells readers that although her journey to parenthood brought enormous heartache, she and her husband don’t regret the path they followed.  Infertility put a strain on her marriage, but in the end, it brought her and her husband closer together. Lisa too cites Dr. Frederick as the driving force behind her success, and credits her with the birth of her children: Lorielle Faith, age five, and Logan Robert, age two.

Millions of people struggle with infertility, but it can be a heartbreaking and isolating experience.  Reading about other couples who face reproductive challenges can help patients cope with their own obstacles.  To read the full essays and view a picture of the families with Dr. Frederick, visit HRC Fertility.
