Samantha’s Gift of Hope: Helping Make Your Dream Come True

At Reproductive Gynecology & Infertility (RGI), it’s our honor and joy to help make your dream of having a child come true. One of the most important ways we’re able to do this is with in vitro fertilization, and specifically with our IVF 100% Success Guaranteed Plan.

This is why it’s also our honor to announce RGI-Akron’s exclusive partnership with Samantha’s Gift of Hope to help qualified couples in our IVF 100% Success Guaranteed Plan with the financial aspects of the program.

In vitro fertilization: Advanced and effective (and costly).

Infertility affects more than 6 million American couples and about 1 in every 8 women, making it more common than most people—including those challenged by it—are aware. Today, infertility care is highly advanced, and top-tier providers like RGI have high rates of success, particularly with assisted reproductive technologies like in vitro fertilization (IVF). Yet, the cost of IVF remains high, putting on many couples a challenging financial burden.

That’s where Samantha’s Gift of Hope comes in.

Fostering love and joy with financial grants for couples in RGI-Akron’s IVF 100% Success Guaranteed Plan.

Samantha’s Gift of Hope helps couples enrolled in RGI-Akron’s IVF 100% Success Guaranteed Plan bring a precious life into the world with a financial grant. Each quarter, one couple in the program (at RGI’s Akron location only) will be selected from qualified applicants to receive an award from Samantha’s Gift of Hope to cover the costs of the success program.

The IVF 100% Success Guaranteed Plan at Reproductive Gynecology & Infertility, like its name suggests, guarantees you’ll take home a baby. The basis for this guarantee is three fresh cycles of IVF and an unlimited number of frozen embryo transfers. But the high-tech nature of—and hard costs involved in—these cycles mean the program is hard for some couples to afford. For couples enrolled in the program, Samantha’s Gift of Hope represents an opportunity to have the costs covered and go home with a precious bundle of joy.

Samantha’s Backstory: Hope Built on Hope.

Samantha’s Gift of Hope is a charitable fund founded by Lisa and Matt Kaulig, a couple who had their own struggles with infertility.

When the Kauligs decided to start a family after being married for a few years, they were met with disappointment. They decided to look into fertility care, and they chose to go with Reproductive Gynecology as their trusted fertility team. With three cycles of IVF, Lisa and Matt were exposed to the expense and physical and emotional challenges involved—and, later, to the sheer joy of having a beautiful baby girl. They named her Samantha, and they later named their gift of hope to others after her.

“She is truly a gift and a blessing,” Lisa says of her daughter. “We would not have her without the amazing staff at RGI, and we will never be able to thank them enough. She is funny, compassionate, and brings joy to our lives each and every day. Our hope is that a fund in her honor will allow other families to experience having their own child/children and to give them hope that it is possible.”
