Stephanie Lucas, 22, knew that Cameron wanted nothing more than to have children, so, after speaking with his family, they decided to go ahead with a $6000 sperm extraction.

The only problem was that she did not have the money needed for the procedure - and, as it is time-sensitive, she had to raise funds fast.

Despetrate, Stephanie took to the Internet and started a GoFundMe page that explained the situation.

She wrote: *"My fiancé Cameron was in a motorcycle accident on Friday and was declared brain dead today at 12:30. We wanted children very much and my family and his family and I have all decided we'd love to still make this happen. *

*"This baby would be truly loved and surrounded by an amazing family. *

*"Unfortunately the cost to extract the sperm is $6,000 that must be paid upfront by tomorrow evening...an amount that we won't be able to come up with on our own. *

"In lieu of flowers or gifts to honour Cameron, we're asking you to make a donation to actually bring a part of Cameron, the amazing, handsome, silly, guy that I loved with my whole heart back to life!"

Stephanie emotionally updated the page, writing: "I will never be able to say it enough — thank you for your support. It is everything."

Cameron's sperm can be kept in storage for a year — until the time is right for Stephanie to have a child.

And, amazingly, while going through his clothes yesterday, Stephanie found a baby-sized Seattle Seahawks jersey that she had forgotten her fiancé purchased.

She’s taking it as a sign that he’ll watch over their child.
