As the organization that supports and provides a voice for people living with infertility, RESOLVE established the Hope Awards to recognize professionals, companies, volunteers, and the media who have demonstrated leadership in the infertility field or have made a positive impact in the lives of people struggling with infertility.

“RESOLVE’s Hope Awards ceremony is a special opportunity to come together and thank leaders in the infertility community who work tirelessly to improve the lives of the 7.3 million women and men in the U.S. facing infertility,” said Barbara Collura, RESOLVE’s President/CEO. “The Hope Awards demonstrate the wide range of work necessary to make a difference, and we are thrilled to recognize these dedicated award recipients.”

“Today, infertility is something that many people still whisper about,” said Bobbie Thomas, author, Style Editor for this year’s Night of Hope emcee. “Yet I learned from first hand experience how much easier it is to face when you have support – support from family, friends, medical professionals, and organizations like RESOLVE that offer hope – which can make a world of difference.”

Past Hope Award honorees include Howard Jones, Jr., Bill and Giuliana Rancic, The View, Redbook Magazine, Self Magazine, The Huffington Post, Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, and National Council for Adoption.
