Due to time constraints and unexpected costs, many cancer patients are unable to access fertility preservation procedures prior to undergoing treatment. The Power of Hope Program has been designed to help change this reality for women who wish to pursue egg or embryo preservation. Fertile Future has partnered with fertility treatment facilities across Canada to increase access to fertility preservation services for cancer patients.

Female cancer patients who qualify for the Power of Hope Program receive:

1) compassionate pharmaceutical product;

2) maximum charge of $4,000 for egg retrieval and egg or embryo cryopreservation, and

3) Fertile Future will reimburse qualifying female patients up to $1,000 to help assist in accessing these vital services

*Please contact your individual fertility clinic to discuss the possibility of compassionate medication if your insurance company does not cover medication.
