Team RAD Raises $2,000 to Support the Delaware Chapter of The TEARS Foundation

October 15, 2022 – RADfertility News

This year marked the fifth anniversary of the Rock & Walk for Babies event to benefit the Delaware Chapter of The TEARS Foundation. On Saturday, October 15, 2022, over 250 participants gathered at Caravel Academy to reflect, celebrate and spread hope. The heart of the Rock & Walk event is to let bereaved families know they are not alone. They strive to build awareness about pregnancy and infant loss by bringing the community together to support these families at this meaningful memorial walk. This year’s event was on a day filled with so much meaning, Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day.

Team “RAD Remembers,” wore our pink and blue to support our patients and the community at the annual event. Our team included 41 members comprised of RADfertility patients, staff and their families that sought support raising $2,000 for this amazing organization!

The Delaware Chapter of The TEARS Foundation recently shared some special news. In the near future, Delaware TEARS will be opening a Center For Child Loss in our community. This will be a safe space for parents to gather as a community, host memorial gatherings, hold support groups, utilize resources, or even have a peaceful space for reflecting and healing.

RADfertility has been proud to support this organization and uplifting event over the past five years. We thank the special moms that lead The TEARS Foundation and have created a tradition for so many families to gather together and remember. All funds raised are used to support and bring hope to bereaved families in Delaware.

Team RAD Remembers was 41 members strong! Our staff are devoted to their patients and they showed up in full force to raise pregnancy and infant loss awareness.

Seeing special RAD families like the Boyd Family made this day even more meaningful! Chris, Meaghan and Kinsley walked in honor of their beautiful Carsen Ann.

The McQuaid family joined our RADfertility team 5 years ago and they have continued to join us every year to walk in honor of their son and brother, Chase Jay McQuaid.

"I feel so lucky to have found RADfertility. I tried two other clinics before I expanded my search and found RADfertility. I drive an hour each way to go to them but I don’t regret a thing. They are so caring and so professional. Every time I message them they respond quickly. Every time I see them they have a friendly smile and warm welcome. They explain everything so well and I never feel lost in the process as I did elsewhere. They also took the time to figure out what was wrong. Other clinics threw up their hands, said 'I don’t know' and pushed me to try IVF."

"Dr. Feinberg and the entire staff at RADfertility are absolutely amazing. The receptionists, coordinators, nurses, and lab staff are compassionate, caring, and straight forward. I’ve had a 12-year infertility journey and I’ve tried other clinics but RADfertility was the only one I felt at ease with. They answered any questions that I had and were there any time I needed them. My coordinator, Amy, was the absolute best and always had my back. Dr. Feinberg’s dedication to his patients is incredible. You are not just a number there, you are a person with individualized needs and care."

"My journey with RADfertility and Dr. McGuirk started when my husband and I were trying to conceive and were having difficulty. We went to RADfertility, where we met Dr. McGuirk. I always say she changed my life and 'fixed' me. Dr. McGuirk is always learning more about endometriosis and how to help her patients. She’s brilliant and truly cares for you! I’m eternally grateful to her and everyone at RADfertility for their unwavering support, love, and care."

"Every step of our journey was tailored to us. We were treated so respectfully. Every detail was clearly explained and we felt so comfortable. Rhonda Wright was a Godsend and inspiring. I highly recommend this place! I cried when my weekly appointments were done and I 'graduated.'"

"The staff and doctors are amazing. It will feel like home every time you walk in the door. They gifted us with our miracle baby and we couldn’t be happier. I will always recommend RADfertility above all others!"

"RADfertility's staff has heart and provided me with exceptional health care. I knew I was in good hands and felt like we were in this together. The doctors and nursing staff always answered all of my questions and provided thorough information about all of my options.

"I cannot begin to explain how wonderful RADfertility is. We were frustrated with trying to start a family and it not working for us. The entire team of doctors and nurses made us feel comfortable and hopeful that we would be parents. We experienced so many ups and downs but we never felt like we were on our IVF journey alone, we had our RADfertility team every step of the way. If you're looking for a supportive team on the IVF journey, look no further. RADfertility is the absolute best."

"Dr. Schillings always kept us informed and never gave up on us. She always explained our options and risks with each procedure. She called us personally when there were any issues or sensitive subjects to cover. Dr. Schillings was the first doctor that had answers for us and wanted to help us have our miracle baby!"
