Since I have published my profile of Sarah (and this happened too after Courtney’s story ran) a couple of my friends who haven’t gone through infertility emailed me saying that they read the story with tears rolling down their faces. One said, “I had no idea. No idea.”
I honestly think that sharing these profiles is a real tool in educating the public what infertility is, and what it feels like. How difficult it can be for us to build our families. Because the public isn’t seeing the real story in the mainstream media.
So, I’m going to ask for your help. I told Mel that I would be very happy if this post was viewed 1,000 times. In disease studies, what’s important is the “reproduction number”, or RO, which is the amount of people who come into contact with the disease who get it.
In this case, I’m hoping that 1,000 people come into contact with this story, and then spread the truth about ALI with four others and four others, etc, etc.
Many of you (including Mel) have already shared the story:
– On Twitter
– On Facebook
– On StumbleUpon
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
