RESOLVE campaign celebrates first U.S. IVF baby turning 40

RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association, recently announced a new campaign to celebrate the 40th birthday of Elizabeth Carr, the first IVF baby born in the U.S. RESOLVE and Carr are working together to raise $40,000 for the 40 years of service to the family building community. Funds will support critical RESOLVE initiatives, including access to care programs such as Coverage at Work and advocating for state insurance laws, as well as RESOLVE’s free support group program that ensures everyone has access to the emotional support they deserve.

“In many ways, the United States is far behind other countries when it comes to access to reproductive medical care for family building, and we have a long way to go. Fundraising to support the critical advocacy work that RESOLVE does is imperative if we are going to move toward coverage for all,” said Carr.

RESOLVE kicks off the campaign with a virtual birthday card that a person can sign once they make a donation. The campaign continues through May 8, 2022, Mother’s Day. Those who donate to the campaign will be invited to join Elizabeth for a special book club with the upcoming release of her memoir, as well as be invited to the only interview with Elizabeth and her mother, Judith Carr.

“Happy Birthday Elizabeth! We’ve come so far in 40 years, but there is still so much work to be done so that access to family building options is available to everyone who needs it,” commented Barbara Collura, President/CEO of RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association. “This is an incredible milestone in family building history, and I’m so grateful that Elizabeth Carr continues to raise awareness about infertility and family building options.”
