Take the 1:8 Pledge
About: Thank you for joining Everlasting Hope’s efforts to provide support for North Dakota women and men who are struggling to build their families by providing them with resources and support.
What: The 1:8 pledge program developed by Everlasting Hope as a means to provide support to North Dakota and South Dakota families diagnosed with infertility by providing funds, resources, education, events, and support.
Since its inception in July 2019, Everlasting Hope has granted $6000 to North Dakota families needing to endure infertility treatment.
Why: Cost is the number one barrier to infertility medical treatment as North Dakota’s insurance law does not cover infertility treatment. The average cost of treatments is over $10,000. Additionally, infertility patients will encounter highly inflated managed care pharmacy prices for medications, where patients with coverage can pay as much as 100% more for medications compared to prices charged to self-pay patients.
A community survey found 39% of participants used credit cards to pay for their fertility procedures, while 12.6% took out loans and 4% used their home as equity, and women (25-34 years old) accrued $30,000 of debt on average after undergoing infertility treatment.
Our Mission: Everlasting Hope’s mission is to support North Dakota and South Dakota families experiencing infertility while creating public awareness that infertility is a treatable medical condition.
Goal: Our goal is to help four families per year with medical expenses endured from infertility or cancer preservation treatment along with providing education, resources, and support to North Dakota and South Dakota families experiencing infertility.
