  2. Hello,

    My name is Yessenia and I work for Physician’s Surrogacy at Reproductive Sciences Medical Center and I have been trying to contact The Guardian for some time now. I am interesting in buying a half page horizontal ad for the print version of the newspaper and an online ad for one month. If you can help me navigate as to where I can complete this purchase, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
