Celebrity Lifestyle Blogger, Tia Walker of The Quest for “it”, hosted her 2nd annual “Save the Eggs” function tonight, benefiting Fertile Hope, an organization that raises funds for women who wish to conserve their eggs before they go through cancer-related chemotherapy.
Tia, who, herself, has unexpectedly dealt with and successfully overcome breast cancer, knows about the concern for egg conservation oh too well. Fertile Hope aims to increase awareness of egg harvesting, with the mission to secure funds for women unable to cover the expense of saving their eggs when faced with the possibility of infertility due to chemotherapy. Fertile Hope is a national, nonprofit organization dedicated to providing reproductive information, support and hope to cancer patients and survivors whose medical treatments present the risk of infertility.
The host committee of this charity soiree consisted of: Alex McCord, Simon Van Kempen, Benjamin Emile Le Hay, Stephanie Newhouse, Douglas Marshall, Designer Christine Marchuska, Juliana Ilvento, Jeremy Logan-Canvendish, Larry Zarsky & Robert Levin of Icon Group.
Celebrity couple, Alex McCord & Simon Van Kempen of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” discuss their personal connections to Tia Walker and the Fertile Hope cause:
Tia’s mom and aunt (twins!), Peggie Walker (her mom) and Patricia Diaz (her aunt), explain how and why Tia is so passionate about this cause and how they are able to relate to her concerns:

A HUGE congrats goes out to Tia for an event well done, and money well raised for such an important yet under-discussed charity that deserves to be in the spotlight.
