RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association Recognizes Outstanding Contributions to the Family Building Community
(McLean, VA, September 23, 2012) – RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association is pleased to announce that Kelly Damron is being awarded the Hope Award for Service for her successful and long-time commitment to volunteering for the RESOLVE community. Damron will accept the award at RESOLVE’s Night of Hope Gala on October 2, 2012 at Guastavino’s in New York City. As the organization that supports and provides a voice for people diagnosed with infertility, RESOLVE established the Hope Awards to recognize professionals, companies, volunteers and the media who have demonstrated innovation and compassion to benefit people struggling with infertility.
Damron has been a long-time RESOLVE volunteer in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Damron’s efforts have brought RESOLVE’s mission to her community. She has served as a volunteer leader in Arizona, including offering support through a local peer support group, coordinating educational events, leading and organizing three Walk of Hope events for RESOLVE, and has been instrumental in fighting anti-family legislation in Arizona. She shared her personal experience and extensive research in the areas of infertility, premature babies, and pregnancy-related depression in her book, Tiny Toes: A Couple’s Journey Through Infertility, Prematurity, and Depression.
“RESOLVE is delighted to recognize Kelly for her leadership and support of the infertility community,” said Barbara Collura, RESOLVE’s President. “The Night of Hope is a special opportunity to come together and thank all those who work tirelessly to improve the lives of the 7.3 million women and men in the U.S. facing infertility.”
The 15th Annual Night of Hope attracts more than 300 leaders and influencers in the family building community. Past Hope Award recipients include The TODAY Show, The View, Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, Church & Dwight, the makers of First Response®, and Dr. Alan DeCherney.
