Lilly pioneered the idea of inter-agency donor sharing and is a big proponent of inter-agency communication and support. Lilly was excited to work in the field of ethics with other agencies. Her goal with the Society for Ethics in Egg Donation in Surrogacy is to encourage self-regulation in the assisted reproduction industry and provide the best service to clients while honoring, respecting and valuing the donors and surrogates participating in our programs.
