FORT MYERS, Fla. – Want to win a baby? That’s right, a baby. A Fort Myers, Florida, radio station is giving away a once in a lifetime sweepstakes.

For the second year in a row, B1039 is having a contest in which the winner gets a round of in vitro fertilization treatment and the required medication.

Last year, Krista Rivera and her husband Anthony walked away winners.

Their journey to be parents has been a long one after Anthony was diagnosed with testicular cancer.

Their only option was IVF treatment but it’s expensive. Yet, after winning the contest, their dreams came true.

“I’m 25 weeks pregnant. It’s been a really healthy pregnancy so far and we are really excited,” Krista said.

She said she’s having a boy.

They are naming him Garrett and he’s due August 21.

“There is no doubt in my mind that we would not be pregnant right now if it wasn’t for B1039 and IVFMD and their contest,” Krista said.

If you’re struggling with infertility, you can enter the Win a Baby contest next week.

“You have to go to B1039.com right now and get ready. Upload your video this Monday,” said the B1039 host, Jason “Big Mama” Jones.

Big Mama said him and his wife struggled to have a baby too.

“And we realized one in eight people struggle with infertility and we said, ‘Hey, let’s make a miracle happen.’ ”

All you have to do is submit a video.

They are accepting submissions starting May 13 at 8 a.m. until midnight May 31.

B1039 is partnering with IVFMD in Naples, Florida, and S.M.P. pharmacies in order to make this milestone sweepstakes happen.

“Tell us your story, tell the world why you want to be a parents,” said Big Mama.

Voting will go through June 7 and a winner will be announced June 19. That’s when a new lucky couple will have the chance to start a family.
