Fertility Solutions has been selected as a LIVESTRONG Fertility program partner. Joining the nearly 600 centers across 48 states that offer discounted services to cancer survivors through this program, Fertility Solutions will add to the $17 million dollars that LIVESTRONG Fertility has already saved cancer survivors in fertility preservation expenses since 2004.
Formerly known as Fertile Hope, LIVESTRONG Fertility provides reproductive information, support, and financial assistance to cancer survivors who seek to preserve fertility or plan for a family after undergoing medical treatments that present a risk to fertility. The program also provides free stimulation medication for women in partnership with a pharmaceutical company. Additionally, LIVESTRONG Fertility works to expand the current options available to cancer survivors by creating partnerships with reproductive endocrinologists and fertility centers around the nation.
“We are proud to be named as a LIVESTRONG Fertility program partner. This partnership will help us to further support those in our community who are affected by cancer,” notes Fertility Solutions’ Management. “We share the LIVESTRONG’s’s enthusiasm and commitment to helping those diagnosed with cancer to have a family, regardless of financial means. Together, we hope to make a profound difference in the lives of survivors and their families in our area.”
Anyone affected by cancer can apply prior to the start of cancer treatment to receive discounted services at any of LIVESTRONG’s partnered centers. Last year, 1,568 individuals were approved to receive discounts, and more than 8,000 have been approved since the program began in 2004.
“Through LIVESTRONG Fertility and all of its other programs and services, LIVESTRONG aims to empower individuals in their community to take control of their cancer journey and help them plan for life after cancer,” said Aditi Narayan, LIVESTRONG Foundation Program Manager.
