Julia & Bryan

On February 25th, I received the phone call that no one ever wants to get - “I’m so sorry Julia, that lump in your breast is cancerous”. At age 29, 4 months before our wedding, 5 months before we wanted to try to conceive, we found out I will be going through chemotherapy instead. Immediately I was thinking about my fertility and how chemo might affect our chances of having a baby.

Sarah and Amanda

Our journey began when we were travelling to our favourite place, Bulgaria. This country has a special place in our hearts. We were visiting friends when I showed them the ring I was going to propose to Amanda with. Fast forward a few years, we were once again in Bulgaria when we knew we wanted to start a family and settle down in our hometown of Kelowna, Canada.

The Majors

After almost 5 years of trying to conceive and working with doctors, plus 4 failed rounds of IUI we looked at the thought of proceeding down the journey of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). Neither Bryce or I had anything medically wrong that prevented us from having children or impacted the process, it just simply wasn't going to happen on its own.
