NEED YOUR HELP!!!

If you haven't already heard, a bill was introduced into the Senate that requires YOUR attention. The bill, if passed, would help those of us paying for infertility treatments with a pretty nice tax credit.

Here is some information about the bill from RESOLVE.
And here is a link to a form that you can fill out quickly to send an email to your US Senators saying you support the bill. PLEASE send this information to your friends and family.

In fact, I'll even make it easy for you. Copy the email below that I sent to my friends and family and send it to yours!!!

Hi Family and Friends!

We would really appreciate your help. A bill has been introduced into the US Senate by a fantastic senator in New York. The bill would financially help those struggling with infertility by giving a tax credit for some of the money spent to cover the expensive costs of IVF.  We ask that you contact your U.S. Senators by filling out the simple form located here:

https://secure2.convio.net/res/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=351


It should take less than a minute to fill it out. All you need to do is fill in your name and address and check the boxes of your U.S. Senators and it will email it directly them.

If you'd like to read about the bill, you can find information here:

Please don't hesitate to call me if you'd like to learn more. We'd really appreciate each of you filling this out. Thanks so much!

Oh, I'm so writing in on this one. I've heard about it before. Even though NJ is a state that offers insurance, we need our legislators fighting at the national level to have this approved. Such complete and utter sh*t that this isn't recognized at a national level as a disease that warrants insurance coverage. Thank you for posting!

Thanks for sharing this. I'm in a mandated state, but it's still so important. I emailed in my letter and will be reposting this link to help spread the word.

Thanks for posting this! I put it on my facebook page yesterday, along with sending letters to my senators.
