Did you know, based on a 2012 study by The LIVESTRONG Foundation, 76% of survivors do not preserve their fertility before they are treated for cancer.
LIVESTRONG has been responsive to this need among cancer patients and survivors through LIVESTRONG Fertility, a program that helps individuals diagnosed with cancer become informed about reproductive risks and access fertility preservation options. The fertility program provides information about topics such as: fertility resources, cancer and fertility risks, fertility preservation options and parenthood options. Additionally, for people who are seeking a way to preserve their fertility, the Foundation helps patients access discounted rates for fertility preservation and in finding local fertility-related resources.
