IVF or In Vitro Fertilization is the most common and most effective type of assisted reproductive technology (ART) to help women become pregnant. To make this procedure possible, it is really needed to take sperm from the guy and preserve it until the day of transferring to the woman’s egg.
Alex Powell is the father of baby Xavier Powell. He was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma at the age of 15, and he had to undergo a treatment to cure his cancer but this would leave him infertile.
It was Alex’s stepmother who convinced him to make the process, because she was worried about the future family of her stepson.
It took two decades before Alex found his wife. They are too in love for each other when they finally decided that they really want to have a child. At first, they had many hesitations because it never got the chance to happen that the sperm could last up to that year.
Technically, the normal count is 7 to 10 years only in most cases. But a miracle happened and Xavier was born normal and very healthy.
