there will be surrogates and donors who will not want to join the program because they feel their services should not be reduced. And they are providing a valuable service and a service for which there are medical risks. Those risks should in no way be diminished.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 27, 2009
Extraordinary Conceptions, LLC is thrilled to announce the launch of their low-income program, Altruistic Angels. The agency recognizes that there is a need in the community to help couples and individuals who need a surrogate or a donor to help create their family, but simply cannot afford one. They have partnered with the finest IVF centers, attorneys, and mental health professionals as well as the most caring surrogates and donors who have all agreed to reduce their fees.
Mario Caballero, Executive Director at Extraordinary Conceptions said "Altruistic Angels is so timely given the economic uncertainty we are facing, but we've been working on this program since early this summer when I realized that there are people out there who, through no fault of their own, need a donor or surrogate, but just can't afford one."
"The impetus for this program was Lori Arnold, M.D., Scientific Director at La Jolla IVF," continues Mario, "we met her for a dinner meeting and while we knew there was a population who could not afford third-party reproduction, she was the one to say 'there is an underserved group of people out there and I want to reach them.' Right then, we said 'How can we help?'"
Stephanie Caballero, Esq, Founder of Extraordinary Conceptions, LLC knows that "there will be surrogates and donors who will not want to join the program because they feel their services should not be reduced. And they are providing a valuable service and a service for which there are medical risks. Those risks should in no way be diminished."
But she goes on to state that the couples and individuals who enter the program will have to qualify and demonstrate a true financial need. When a woman helps someone who truly could not have had a child without her specific help, those are the woman that will apply to join the program."
To qualify for the Altruistic Angels Program, an annual income of $110,000 for couples or $65,000 for individuals must not be exceeded.
