Samantha’s Gift of Hope is a periodic monetary award intended for those who are a part of Reproductive Gynecology & Infertility’s IVF 100% Success Guaranteed Plan in the Northeast Ohio office locations.

A Common Problem

While infertility is rarely addressed in general conversation, it’s a problem that is far too common. Millions of Americans, both men and women, struggle when it comes to starting a family.

1 in 8 Couples

1 in 8 couples in the United States struggle to conceive and sustain a pregnancy as reported by U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Survey of Family Growth. Less than 5% of couples facing infertility go on to use IVF.

Women from 18 – 44

Though infertility is commonly associated with older women, it affects about six percent of married women between the ages of 18 and 44. Twelve percent of U.S. women in that age bracket also have difficulties getting pregnant or carrying a pregnancy to term. Infertility is a challenge faced by women of all ages and backgrounds.

Standing with you in hope

Our Mission

Samantha’s Gift of Hope wants to support couples struggling with infertility. Infertility affects approximately 1 in 8 women and 6.1 million American couples. While medical advances exist, their high cost has made them unattainable to so many.

Monetary Support

About the Award

Established in 2018, this monetary award is distributed quarterly to families in need that are already working with Reproductive Gynecology & Infertility.

Their Story

Matt & Lisa

Matt and Lisa’s lives intersected during their studies at the University of Akron. When they fell in love, they also fell in love with the Northeast Ohio community. They married in 1998 and hoped to grow a family. After trial and error (and countless negative pregnancy tests), they pursued in vitro fertilization (IVF). Through IVF, Matt and Lisa learned the joys of parenthood and welcomed their daughter, Samantha, into the world.


How to Apply

While online applications are not accepted, they are available at Reproductive Gynecology & Infertility’s offices in Akron, Ohio for couples who are a part of their IVF 100% Success Guaranteed Plan.
