27 year old Chelsea is desperately looking to raise £10,000 to fund her IVF treatment. Chelsea is a survivor, she has survived years of physical and sexual abuse at the hands of her father who is currently serving ten years in prison after years of abusing his daughter.
Chelsea, whose family live in Havering still suffers from the results of this abuse, her elbows easily dislocate after her father would grab her by her elbows shaking her violently.
Now, having survived years of anguish, Chelsea has made something of her life and finds herself in a loving relationship with her partner. The couple recently celebrated their third anniversary and would dearly like to settle down and start their own family. Sadly for Chelsea after enduring so much physical trauma she was told that she can not conceive naturally and would require IVF treatment to have a child.
Chelsea told the Havering Daily: “I got told at the age of 21 years old that I would not be able to have children and that my only way forward would be to have IVF treatment. Sadly we are not entitled to free IVF treatment as my partner already has a child and so that does not do not make us eligible for free treatment.
“We are looking to raise the money as neither of us has £10,000 to be able to afford this treatment.”
Chelsea is currently in the process of taking two large organisations to court after their repeated failure to do anything about her father’s ongoing physical and sexual abuse.
She continued: “I made so many cries for help since I was a child and no one took my cries seriously. In the end I ran away from home at the age of 14 years old to try and escape him. My father was a drug dealer who didn’t care about anyone and would take it out on myself and my mother.
“After years of being scared I now stand up for myself and share with the world my story in the hope that I can help others who have experienced similar horrors to what I have.”
Chelsea was left broken hearted when she was told that she did not qualify for free IVF treatment.
“My world crumbled, neither my partner nor myself can afford £10,000 to get this treatment. Having a child is something really dear to me and without this treatment I will never have the chance to have one.”
Chelsea’s body has suffered years of abuse and now her biggest desire is to be able to have a family of her own. If you would like to help Chelsea please see her go fund me page below.
