A cancer diagnosis can be scary and overwhelming, as there are important decisions to make and things to consider. We understand what you may be feeling and are gathering a variety of resources to help you through this difficult time. If you are a young Canadian under the age of 40 and you have been diagnosed with cancer, protecting your fertility may be an important consideration in your treatment. Survival rates are at an all time high of 80% for many cancers. This is good news. We have learned that knowing your fertility preservation options and making choices based on reliable and timely information is empowering for yourself and your family. It can be a way of taking control of a situation that can often feel out of control.
