"With all they have sacrificed for our country, the founders and staff of RMANJ are deeply proud and passionate about giving back to those that protect our freedom. We are fortunate to be able to lend our expertise to help military families overcome the challenges of infertility," said Dr. Richard Scott, MD, FACOG, ALD/HCLD, a founding partner and the laboratory director at RMANJ, and a former member of the U.S. Air Force. RMANJ introduced the Helping Heroes Build Families program to help address the financial difficulties our military heroes and their spouses face when trying to have a family. Earlier this year, the U.S. Defense Department announced limited fertility benefits for troops in the form of coverage for sperm and egg freezing. And recent Congressional legislation reportedly expands access to - but not funding for -- some fertility services for veterans wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. However, services such as IVF are still not covered for the majority of active-duty military members, putting such services out of reach for most servicemen and servicewomen. "Without Helping Heroes, we would have faced a financial burden - this program was a huge blessing," said Monee Cullars, whose military husband was previously stationed at Fort Dix, NJ. Working with Dr. Thomas Kim of RMANJ, also a former military physician, Monee gave birth to a healthy baby boy, last year. "We can't thank the team and the experienced staff at RMANJ enough," added Monee. "They changed our life around. With my husband having to bear the loss of his parents at age 19, serving through three wars for this country, and later being told he would never have kids - our child meant the world. RMANJ has blessed us with a loving, beautiful and healthy child."
