Young women all over the world are being solicited by a multi billion dollar industry to help infertile couples have a baby. Egg donation agencies are advertising via college campus bulletin boards, social media and online classifieds, promising large sums of money and assurance to the young women of the safety and nobility of the cause. However, egg donors are not tracked and monitored for short and long term risks that are associated with the powerful drugs taken to boost ovulation for harvesting multiple follicles (eggs). "Girls who donate eggs, after they are done with her: there are no numbers. There is nobody asking - How many of those girls have gone on to have complications or problems? - She is nameless, she doesn't appear anywhere. She doesn't appear in the medical literature, she doesn't appear in any kind of tracking or oversight. She is gone." (Suzanne Parisian, MD: 2010) The Harvest is not only a place for us to hear the moving stories recounted by young female donors but it is a memorial wall for the stories that may never be heard.
