A recently married couple from Ledbury, in Herefordshire, have launched a fundraising page to fund their dream of becoming parents via surrogate.
Lisa Beavan-Mason, 31, who recently married her husband, David, was born with Mayer Rokitansky Küster Hauser syndrome, meaning she could never carry her own child.
Their story was recently featured in the Hereford Times, in which Lisa said she hoped that the newlyweds would become parents via a surrogate.
Luckily for the couple, Lisa’s close friend Laura McCrae, has offered to carry the child for the couple, who need to raise in the region of £30,000 for their dream to become a reality.
Lisa was diagnosed with MRKH when she was a teenager and was told that her only option was to have children via a surrogate.
The 31-year-old said: “When I met David, from the start I had to say, this is the situation I am in. If you want children then that is great but it is going to be hard work. I gave him the option to walk away.
“But he was fantastic. He was very positive about it.”
She said they did hope they would be given a free round of IVF but have been refused and they do not know the reason why.
