National Infertility Awareness Week®
One of life’s most devastating realizations is the inability to become pregnant. Infertility is a disease and wreaks havoc on millions and millions of couples across the U.S. The second most devastating realization comes after this diagnosis: coming to terms with the lack of support and inconsistent information when trying to seek medical care. Most patients face the epic battle of fighting their insurance company, employer and medical team to access the healthcare needed to treat this disease. Fertility Within Reach provides these couples with advice, tools and support to help build their family.
We help one couple at a time. During National Infertility Awareness Week® we are asking your support to help fund one or more initiatives to help make a difference to a family in need.
“I will never forget you. You are a Godsend. The insurance company covered all of my costs for the cycle in dispute from last year.” -Tasha L. in Queens, NY

About Fertility Within Reach
Guided by the needs of individuals and aligning with providers we endeavor to protect and further access to family building benefits. We believe that when armed with information and best-practice strategies, individuals are able to ensure their family-building needs are met and reproductive health is preserved.
Fertility Within Reach has a vision of a time when infertility is recognized nationwide as a standard medical condition which requires insurance coverage for diagnosis and treatment. We want to make this vision a reality.
Davina Fankhauser is Fertility Within Reach’s Chief Advocate and Founder. Davina is driven to teach others how to advocate for themselves in the hope that they will be spared the pain and heartache known to accompany infertility, especially when denied access to timely and appropriate treatment.
“I thought Kitty was the most tenacious advocate I had ever known, until I met Davina.”
-Governor Michael Dukakis
