Friends Raise Money for In Vitro Fertilization
Before Scott and Brigitte Gross, a couple in Somerset County, PA, decided to use in vitro fertilization, two friends — Tracey Barron and Lori Fisher — had talked about a foundation to help one or two Somerset County women a year go through IVF. After the Grosses had one IVF with a subsequent miscarriage, Fisher wrote letters to the doctors at the fertility clinic and to members of their families, explaining what they were trying to do and without telling the Grosses what they had planned. They also posted it on Facebook and sold chocolate to raise more money.
