The fiancée of a man who died after a freak fall at a skate park is hoping to have his child thanks to sperm freezing.
Jess Claassens was devastated when her partner Chris Pinto, 32, suffered critical head injuries at Mudjimba Skate Park in Australia.
The skateboarder was rushed to hospital after the incident but sadly died two days later.
A friend launched a GoFundMe page to raise money for Jess to be able to have IVF.
The fundraiser reads: "Jess has decided to use the money towards IVF in the future to be able to have a piece of Chris in her life forever.
"Being parents was their dream and with your help this can still be a reality for Jess."
So far, $13,060 have been raised - almost half of the $30,000 target.
After Chris died, Jess confirmed on her Facebook profile that she wants to have IVF as the couple's dream was to have children together.
She wrote on her Facebook profile: "I'm finding this near impossible to write but I need to share something with everyone who loved Chris.
"After I was given the worst news of my life that my person and love of my life was not going to have the chance to fight and stay with me I chose with the full support of his family to contact an IVF clinic and have some of his sperm extracted and frozen as I would do absolutely anything to have a piece of him still here with me.
"With the help of my incredible family they were able to make this happen with such short notice and in such a small time frame.
"Chris was so so excited and passionate about being a Dad in the near future, we wanted nothing more than to have a child together and spend the rest of our lives ridiculously in love.
"I was called yesterday and informed that the procedure was very successful and I will have the opportunity to attempt IVF when I am ready.
"I am letting you all know this very personal information as it is the only small amount of hope I have for my future without him."
The couple's friends have shared their support for the choice Jess made.
One commented: "This is true love. I’m sure you’ll have every bit of support when bringing your baby into the world.
"I’m sorry that this had to happen through tragedy but your child will be so loved."
Another added: "Congratulations Jess. I take my hats off to you for making Chris’s dream come true.
"That was one of the things he had discussed with me! Goes to show how truly you were in love with each other."
One more wrote: "I will be there to support and you all the way. This is such a beautiful ray of light in dark times."
