A fertility clinic in New York had given 30 couples who are struggling to afford IVF one free treatment, at a cost of $30,000 each
Dr John Zhang, of the New Hope Fertility Center, in Manhattan, told CBS New York he wanted to give something back in the unusual lottery.
He said: “It shows from our heart that this is our passion to help the couples to have babies.”
About 500 couples entered the lottery, which was drawn live on CBS New York on Friday, May 5
“Never too late and never give up,” he said.
There is some good news for the couples who didn’t get selected, Dr Zhang offered a free consultation for everyone who entered the lottery.
