IVF Treatment Couple Expecting Triplets

A childless couple who won a round of IVF in a raffle last year, are expecting triplets.

According to the Daily Mail, Serena and Travis Mackrell, from Draper, Utah, entered a lottery run by a local non-profit organisation called Footsteps for Fertility last September which awarded five couples with expensive fertility procedure free of charge.

Speaking about their news, 29-year-old Mrs Mackrell told Deseret News: "I never expected this... I still can't believe it sometimes."

Footsteps for Fertility was established by Mackrell's two sisters Holly Bryant and Laurel Sheppard last year. Both women, who have children of their own, said they were inspired by their sister's struggle to get pregnant and launched an initiative to help others in similar situations.

The charity aims at raising awareness of infertility and helps secure grants for those who are unable to afford treatment, which often costs more than $10,000.

In September last year, Mrs Bryant and Mrs Sheppard staged a 5k run and a post-race raffle. Only 47 couples with infertility issues entered and the remaining 950 participants were friends and family members. Each entrant was required to pay a $35 entry fee which secured them a spot in the race and a raffle ticket. In total five couples were awarded cycles of IVF.
