‘Win a Baby’ contest winners have a boy – Fox 4

CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- A once-in-a-lifetime radio sweepstakes helped a Cape Coral couple start their own family.

B1039 held a 'Win a Baby' contest in which the winner gets a round of in vitro fertilization treatments and required medication.

Now, Krista and Anthony Rivera can call themselves parents.

When we thought we couldnt have a baby, it was crushing, said Krista.

Things made an unexpected turn a few years ago.

Out of nowhere, we got the news that I was diagnosed with testicular cancer, said Anthony.

Their only option was IVF treatment but its expensive. Then last year, they won the 'Win a Baby' contest.

Without the contest, we definitely would not have been able to have our dream of having a baby, said Krista.

Their baby boy, Garrett is now 3 months old and they are forever grateful for this little guy.

I never ever would have thought that three years later, I would be holding my baby boy, said Anthony.

This is really a dream come true. we never thought wed have our miracle and were so happy to have our little family, said Krista.

They said Garrett is truly a miracle because the IVF process isnt easy. It turns out one in eight couples have trouble getting pregnant.

They want to inspire other couples who are struggling to get pregnant to never give up hope.

Krista: Its so worth it so keep fighting. I know its hard its never easy but its worth it, said Krista.

This years 'Win a Baby' winners, Vy and Chris Nguyen said they are going through the infertility process right now and hope to start their own family soon.
