This is just a reminder that April 23-29 is National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW). Visit http://www.resolve.org for information on ways you can bring awareness to the topic of Infertility. There are many ways you can help spread awareness, so I encourage you to find something, anything, to shed light on this topic. It doesn’t have to be hard or complicated-make it easy!
If you visit the resolve website you will see a few suggestions as ways you can help: The Walk of hope (they offer many in different areas the walk is being held, unfortunately there isn’t one in WI yet. Currently, they do offer them in about 8 different states & there is the option to start one in your own state). You could join a support group or start a support group in your area if there isn’t one already being offered. There are fundraising options for the resolve organization. Make a donation. Give a gift or send a card to a friend or family member to let them know you care and they are worthy to be recognized during this trying time. Share your personal story on social media to shed light on this topic and/or share the infertility fact sheet found on resolve’s website. There is also a blogging opportunity to write about the topic of infertility during the week of NIAW (again, see the website for details).
Many, many, many ways to spread awareness. Will you stay silent or will you be the change?
