On the show today, Aprill Lane is a mother of five and rare disease and infertility advocate — and you do not want to mess with her. She and her husband, Brian, tried to have a baby on their own for 4½ years until they were diagnosed with unexplained infertility. Endless cycles and tens of thousands of dollars later, they are now the proud parents of five beautiful children, one of whom — Mark —was born with a rare genetic condition. So join us as we examine what it means to be your own advocate, along with the challenges families face with fertility while raising a child with a rare disease.
