Bishop TD Jakes’ daughter, Cora Coleman, at the young age of 26 knows more about loss and pain than some women twice her age. Yet, she has chosen to use her battle with fertility to encourage others.
In March 2014, Cora announced that her second in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment had failed, devastating her. “February 17th my husband received the call that my test was negative, and yet again it did not work,” she wrote in her online journal at FertilityFaith.com.
The first hope-dashing negative result came in December 19, 2011—a blow to her belief that she could overcome Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), with which she was diagnosed at 22.
