A bill was introduced in the U.S. Senate that would provide eligible taxpayers a tax credit for the out-of-pocket expenses related to IVF and treatments to preserve fertility for cancer patients.


A warm thank you goes to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) who introduced the bill which is appropriately named the Family Act of 2011, S965. This was made possible by a successful advocacy day in Washington DC on May 5th put forth by RESOLVE.

Now that the bill is introduced, your help is needed by contacting your 2 U.S. Senators to get co-sponsors in the US Senate. It takes 3 minutes through RESOLVE’s Action Alert System. PLEASE review the online letter by clicking the link above and personalize it with your story.

Ask your friends and family to send letters too! Forward this link so they can take action today. http://www.resolve.org/taxcredit
