Ferring Celebrates Winner of 2008 My Little Miracle Essay Contest During National Infertility Awareness Week
Date:10/23/2008

Contest Brings Hope and Awareness to Millions of Couples Struggling With Infertility

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Ferring Pharmaceuticals is honoring 12 lucky families who won the national 2008 My Little Miracle Essay Contest for their heart-warming and inspirational stories of their journey to parenthood. The winners' 'little miracles' were born with the help of Ferring's family of fertility products. The fifth annual contest celebrates the birth of children who were conceived using Ferring's MENOPUR(R) (menotropins for injection, USP) and/or BRAVELLE(R) (urofollitropin for injection, purified).

The grand prize winner, Sara Braunschweig of Delano, MN will receive $10,000 for an education fund for her six-month-old daughter, Ella, conceived after complications from her husband's vasectomy reversal. Despite many challenges, and being told by a physician that having a child wasn't possible, the couple was determined not to accept "no" for an answer. Thanks to the wonder of fertility treatments, Sara and her husband Michael are the proud parents of a 'little miracle.'

"Each story that we received conveyed a true message of hope and inspiration," said Wayne Anderson, president, Ferring Pharmaceuticals. "We are delighted that our treatments played a role in Sara and Michael's success and hope that more couples will be inspired by their story. With National Infertility Awareness Week upon us, we are focusing our attention on the millions of couples who are struggling to build a family and encourage them to never give up their dream of achieving parenthood."

"My husband and I were elated to learn that we were the grand prize winner of this year's My Little Miracle essay contest," said Sara. "We hope that families who are struggling to conceive will read our story and learn that there is hope. I am truly blessed to have a child and now we have a head start on her education, thanks to this wonderful program from Ferring." '/>"/>
