Kim Griffiths is a former fertility patient and mom of twins conceived via in vitro fertilization (IVF) with intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI). Despite the confusing ups and downs of infertility, one thing was always apparent to Kim: she would get through this. Ever the optimist, Kim turned the negative of a long journey with infertility into a positive experience and opportunity to help others. Kim went on to volunteer with RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, and became the patient spokesperson for an infertility awareness campaign in April 2012 beside Dr. Roshini Raj on television and radio stations across the country. Kim turned her passion and personal experience into a career with Fertility Authority where she helps couples connect with reputable fertility doctors and interviews some of the most fascinating doctors in the field.

The winter holidays are fast approaching and anyone who has struggled with infertility knows how difficult it can be to gather for child-centric holiday events with empty arms. Sadly, the holidays serve as a marker of time gone by without getting pregnant or bringing home a baby.
The Bethesda Fertility Center recognizes how difficult the holidays can be for those dealing with infertility and hopes to lessen the burden of infertility by offering a free IVF cycle to one lucky couple.
For the third consecutive year, Dr. Glen Hofmann and his staff are pleased to offer new and existing patients the opportunity to be entered into this IVF Lottery. Anyone seen for a consultation appointment between November 1, 2013 and December 23, 2013 will qualify for the free cycle. The drawing will take place on Christmas Eve, and the winner will be notified by Dr. Hofmann personally.
