Dr. Hammond and Heather discuss Camille’s personal infertility journey, the foundation, her book, and more: 

PERSONAL INFERTILITY STORY

  • Tell me a bit about yourself. Briefly, how old are you, what do you do for a living, what do you do for fun, etc.?
  • You were diagnosed with endometriosis before trying to conceive, correct? Tell me about that. And did you know then that it might impact your future fertility?
  • Did you and your husband try on your own first, or did you go straight to a fertility specialist given your history?
  • Tell me about all the treatments you tried, and what eventually ended up working.
  • How did you handle all the media coverage of your story?

THE CADE FOUNDATION

  • Why did you co-found the Cade Foundation with your husband?
  • What resources and grants does the Cade Foundation provide?
  • What tips do you have for listeners who are interested in applying for a grant? What could help set them apart from other applicants?
  • Do you have a favorite story or two of past grant winners?
  • Tell me about the Cade Foundation’s events and how listeners can get involved.
  • What future plans do you have for the Cade Foundation?

THE BOOK

  • Tell me about The Guud Book. What is it about, who is the intended audience, and why did you write it?
  • I understand all proceeds go back to the Cade Foundation. Where can listeners purchase their own copy?
  • What are your plans for future Guud Book volumes?

WRAPPING UP THE INTERVIEW

  • What words of hope would you offer to someone who’s at the beginning of their infertility journey right now?
