National Infertility Awareness Week 2010 – IVF Giveaway at CNY Fertility


April 24 – May 1, 2010 is National Infertility Awareness Week®, a movement sponsored by RESOLVE to raise awareness about the disease of infertility which affects 7.3 million Americans. Read more about RESOLVE here.

Dr. Rob Kiltz, Founder and Director of 3 CNY Fertility Centers with locations in Syracuse, Albany and Rochester, focuses on patient empowerment and affordable health care. Creating a family is more than just addressing medical fertility issues that individuals or couples may have. In the spirit of NIAW, Dr. Rob will sponsor a Tele-Workshop with Kristen Magnacca, author of Love & Infertility, to share information and support to individuals and couples going through infertility. Email to join the Tele-Workshop: Focusing on Flourishing on Thursday, April 29, 2010, 6:30pm.

Dr. Kiltz is quoted as saying, “RESOLVE’s National Infertility Awareness Week is a time for us to help educate the general public and create greater awareness and understanding about infertility in Upstate NY, to help women and men find the answers and get the support they need to make important medical decisions and address the medical, emotional, social and economic challenges infertility can present.”

    I think that is great to have such a give away of ivf treatments! it says on there that you have to have a counsultation within 6mths. I was wondering if I was there 11 years ago and found out that I needed ivf if I would still need to do that?

    Hi Christine,
    You bring up a great point about past clients. We did alter the notes area above to address this. If you are a winner of one of the free IVF cycles, we will need you to come in for a followup consultation.
    Thank you for the inquiry and enjoy your day!

    I was a client 3years ago and had twins. I just wanted to know, I put down “no” as a current client should I have put yes. And if so, can I change it or will it affect my entry?

    Hi Jennifer,
    Your current client status has no bearing on your entry for this giveaway, it won’t affect it positively or negatively. You answered it correctly by stating “no” if you are not currently being seen by CNY Fertility. Thanks for registering.
    My best to you,
    Chris 🙂

    What an amazing contest! It is because of Dr Kiltz and the wonderful office family at CNY that my little girl is 3 weeks old today! Everyday I give thanks. We will be coming back in hopes of giving our little girl a little brother or sister.

    Hi Chris,
    I may have registered twice for the “win 1 free IVF cycle”, i hope this did not disqualify me due to multiple entries. Would you check to see if everything is ok? This is very exciting, better than the lottery!

    God bless Dr.Kiltz to offer this great giveaway and to have people open their eyes … that NOT everyone can have children – without a little help from a doctor !!! I am 34 years old and my husband and I have been trying to conceive for over 10 years and it is very costly … especially emotionally … when people have never been through it ! Thank you Dr. Kiltz, maybe people will be more respective and informed as to the amount of people that are trying to deal with infertility !

    Oooh! How wonderful for the families that are going to get selected. I spoke with the office staff last year and when we are financially ready we will be flying to NY! 🙂 We changed insurance providers so now we have coverage for medications – and we are tucking all the $$ we can into our HSA 🙂

    I think that this giveaway gives many women including myself some hope. I have been trying to concieve for 6 years and have had 2 failed IUI’s. This is such an emotional rollercoaster and hopefully it will be over soon. I was just wondering how do you decided who wins the IVF’s and I was also wondering if my entry made it through ok.

    Mary says:

    What a wonderful opportunity! My husband and I have started looking at fertility clinics after my recent surgery for endo. Our insurance doesn’t offer any coverage for infertility-related procedures, so we are trying to choose very wisely. My surgeon in Binghamton had highly recommended CNY Fertility, and upon finding your website, I found this contest. We can only hope!

    Will four IVF giveaways and one per month for 6 months be done in 2011? I hope so. I did not win last year but entered every month. I may be my only hope this summer after spending my entire retirement savings over the past two years with unsuccessful IVF’s.
