Loma Linda University Medical Center (LLUMC) physician, John Norian, MD, will take to the streets of Los Angeles on March 18 to raise funds in support of families who struggle with infertility.

Dr. Norian, a fertility specialist at LLUMC Center for Fertility and In Vitro Fertilization, will run the 26.2-mile Los Angeles Marathon in hopes of raising $2,500 for the Tinina Q. Cade Foundation—a registered non-profit national organization that serves the needs of families battling infertility.

“Since I became part of LLUMC, I have seen firsthand how powerful the Cade Foundation is and thus,” Dr. Norian said, “I have been motivated to tread through the streets of L.A. to raise some money for this very important group. Every dollar raised will go to southern California couples struggling with infertility.”

Every week, Dr. Norian meets with numerous Inland Empire couples who are trying to start a family, however medical and oftentimes financial constraints make the process even more challenging.

Through education and outreach, the Cade Foundation supports families struggling with infertility and strives to educate outside communities about relevant and related issues.

Financial assistance is provided to couples through the Family Building Grant -- a grant that oftentimes assists those couples who seek fertility treatment at LLUMC. In addition to fertility treatment, the grant also assists couples who are pursuing domestic adoption.
