Alexis Cirel Named to Baby Quest Foundation Board of Directors01/28/2022
Non-Profit Awards Grants to Help Finance Advanced Fertility Treatments
Alexis Cirel, Partner in the Matrimonial Group and Founding Chair of the Fertility Law Group at Warshaw Burstein, LLP, has been named to the Board of Directors of the Baby Quest Foundation.
Baby Quest, based in Los Angeles, California, is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to helping couples and/or individuals build families through advanced fertility treatments such as IVF, egg and sperm donation, embryo donation, and gestational surrogacy.
Alexis said, “Baby Quest Foundation is so important. The out-of-pocket costs of assisted reproduction can be shocking, and in many cases, prohibitive. Those whose path to parenthood depends on fertility treatments and/or third-party arrangements should not have to give up their dream of having a child because their bank accounts or access to coverage fall short. Baby Quest offers hope to intended parents who find themselves in this position. I am honored to serve on the Board.”
About Baby QuestWith the high costs of assisted reproduction, a solution to infertility is often out of reach, allowing financial need to prevent many from becoming parents. It is not easy to battle the demon of infertility. Those affected are up against insurance companies who refuse to cover the costs of physicians, labs, and medications. There are military veterans – even those injured in battle – who have been denied coverage. Many cancer survivors, robbed of fertility because of chemotherapy, cannot receive insurance benefits for fertility. Beyond the emotional and physical despair brought on by infertility, there is the impact of not being able to afford treatment. Baby Quest has grown one grant, one IVF, one new baby at a time. More than anything, our grant program offers hope to many who feel lost. Only with community support can we continue to offer this hope to more recipients each grant cycle.
Baby Quest is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
