The Thomas Family, one of five families selected nationally to receive a grant to help them overcome infertility and become parents.

A Macon couple will be awarded a grant for fertility treatment on Saturday, November 2nd at the annual Cade Foundation Family Building Banquet in Washington DC. Joy and Brandon Thomas will be one of 5 couples to receive a grant.

Joy and Brandon speak about how Cade Foundation has helped them to overcome the isolation of infertility by adopting them into a world where they were amongst friends and family who share and understand their challenges. Infertility treatment is not covered by their insurance (as is the case for many infertile couples in Georgia) and they spent thousands of dollars out of pocket for nine treatments that had ended in negative results. According to the couple, "we reached out to the foundation with hopes they could help us to have the opportunity to take the next step in our treatment: In Vitro Fertilization. With their amazing gift we will be able to afford the procedure in 2014. With this help we hope and pray that 2014 is the year we are able to finally expand our family."

Since 2005 the Cade Foundation has existed to offer education and support to infertile families. The organization was named after Dr. Tinina Cade, who carried and delivered the founders’ triplets following 5 years of infertility, at 55 years old. To date the Cade Foundation has awarded 42 grants to couples to help them OVERCOME infertility by pursuing fertility treatment or adoption. The fruits of our labor can be seen through the 33 children born with the help of the foundation.
