I guess I could feel sad about this upcoming week with all the advertising and restaurant discounts and sports related events that’s catering to Father’s Day however I’m not. Fathers could use alot of recognition even though some of them lately have been misbehaving very badly!

For the record this day is meaningful for me because my father was a hardworking and great Coal Miner from West Virginia who assisted in raising 15 brothers and sister (and yes my mother plays a huge role in our lives even today.) I know you have a story to tell but I don’t think I will have enough neither space nor time to mention it here. Sorry about that but I had better let you know why I chose to talk about Father’s Day and Infertility in the same sentence.

Did you know that…?

“Infertility is a disease, and if you have been diagnosed, you are not alone. According to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 7.3 million Americans, or 1 in 8 couples of childbearing, age are infertile.”

I have chosen to direct my energy and focus towards those silent individuals who suffer from infertility and/or presently experiencing the inability to procreate due to physical, physiological, genetic issues, or some unknown cause.

I am proud to be a professional member of such an organization as Resolve who advocates, supports, and educates communities and members about infertility.

We can all do something for the men and women and families across our country who
find it difficult to pay out-of-pocket for infertility medical treatment…

“Have the men in your life taken action? Ask them to support the Family Act of 2011, S965
More than 2,000 women and men have contacted their Senators to urge them to co-sponsor S 965 — a bill to create a tax credit for the out-of-pocket costs associated with infertility medical treatment. Introduced in the U.S. Senate by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (NY), this bill will potentially help thousands of people seek medical treatment that otherwise would be out of reach for them. ”

Secondly, take a moment this week to visit http://www.RESOLVE.ORG to learn more about Infertility and what you can do to support such an important Cause!

Happy Father’s Day

My Shortest Post!

June 22, 2009

lulu project 045What’s going on in your life since my last post ?  I have managed to reduce the level of entries over at twitter and all my other social media sites. I continue to wrestle with my personal angst surrounding topics that will generate a comment or a response.  I’m really trying hard not to talk or discuss the news especially the global unrest in both Iran and Iraq. My heart and prayers are deeply focused on the two young women reporters who have been detained and sentenced in North Korea.  Ok, so I ‘m also back from a camping trip with the family and friends. Our most memorable moment consisted  of a sudden visit from a bear sitting about 20 feet away from us as we sat around a campfire in the Shenandoah National Park.I must say that we were a little shaken but remained still. The bear looked at us and then continuued to walk  through the brush off to the left of our tent.  I didn’t panic because i was caught by surprise.

So keeping with my shortest post , I would like to share some of my published work over at Ezinearticles.com.  Just follow this URL  …. http://twitthis.com/lyutlju….. Your comments are always appreciated!

see ya soon…..

PS. I ask your support for National Advocacy Today on June 25th Visit www.RESOLVE.ORG  for more information on how you can help in increasing awareness about infertility  and support  the new ” Family Building Act “.

I grew up in a very fertile family of fifteen children but never imagined that I would be diagnosed as having a male infertility problem. There are many stories like mine. I thought about how I could make a difference in someone’s life and here’s my support. Approximately 15 days from now I would like for you to recognize and share with your family, friends, colleagues, political leaders, and clergy National Infertility Awareness Week on April 25-May 2nd.  Visit www.resolve.org to find out more about how you can take part in the activities to raise awareness about infertility and family building.  I can tell you that my wife and I have gained so much in education, support, and confidence by finding (RESOLVE) .
