    • Hi Jemma! We agree; programs like Livestrong fertility provide wonderful options for those who want to have children after treatment.

  1. Mom was a breast cancer survivor and she had to go through a lot to have me, but they didn’t have all the help and resources we have now.
    Great to see us progressing as a medical society.

    • Hi Sarah, thank you for your visit today! Yes, it is great to see all of these resources for cancer patients. We wish you and your mom all the very best!
