For a massive percentage of young adults their treatment permanently or temporarily kills their fertiliity. This is obviously not the same issue when you’re 60 as when you’re 20. Fertility preservation options can be extremely limited or nonexistent depending on where you live, that’s IF your doctor remembers to discuss it with you before starting treatment.
BUT, there is hope. Thanks to the work and mission of the organization Fertile Future, young adults facing fertility issues now have a place to go. Fertile Future is pleased to offer patients a number of key services before, during and after they have completed their cancer treatment. Check their website for more information.
Earlier today: the Canadian Cancer Society is made their annual statistics release; this year’s special topic is young adults. Geoff’s made Twitter updates from Toronto, and there’s a recording of the conference here.
