Ferring Announces $10,000 Grand Prize Winner of 2007 My Little Miracle Essay Contest
Date:10/15/2007

Twelve Contest Winners Announced at Annual ASRM Meeting

WASHINGTON, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Twelve lucky families won Ferring Pharmaceuticals' national 2007 My Little Miracle Essay Contest for their dramatic, heart-warming stories of the births of their 'little miracles,' children born with the help of Ferring's family of fertility treatments. The fourth annual contest celebrated the birth of children made possible through Ferring's BRAVELLE(R) (urofollitropin for injection, purified) and/or MENOPUR(R) (menotropins for injection, USP). The winners were announced at the 63rd annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) in Washington, D.C., October 13-17, 2007.

The grand prize winner, Victoria Knapp of Pasadena, CA will receive $10,000 for an education fund for her seven-month-old son, Hendrick, conceived after enduring severe complications from fibroid tumors which ultimately caused her inability to maintain a pregnancy. Despite extensive surgeries and lengthy recovery time, the couple was determined to have a child in spite of medical barriers. Thanks to the wonder of fertility treatments, Victoria and her husband Christopher are the proud parents of a 'little miracle.'

"Every story that we receive portrays the real life struggle that couples endure on their path to becoming parents, and each essay is just as heartwarming and inspirational as the next which makes it difficult for us to choose a winner," said Wayne Anderson, president, Ferring Pharmaceuticals. "But Victoria and Christopher's story of overcoming major medical issues along with their intense desire to give birth had a profoundly happy ending, and we are delighted that our treatments played a role in their success. Stories like these fuel our ongoing commitment to providing the most effective and patient-friendly treatments for families struggling to achieve parenthood."

"I can't believe my story was chosen and I'm the grand prize winner,"
