Preserve
Fertility

Having cancer isn’t a choice.
Having kids still should be.

Our mission is to ensure every young woman newly diagnosed with cancer has the option to preserve fertility through direct financial support, educational programs, and advocacy for legislative change.

We refuse to let the emotional, physical, and financial cost of a cancer diagnosis stand between young women and a full life after beating this disease.

‘That’s an exaggeration - don’t be hysterical.’

‘It happens when you get older, breasts are funny.’

NEVER STOP ASKING QUESTIONS.

All paths to a cancer diagnosis look a little different, but often the one thing in common? Needing to push and push and push until someone takes you seriously.

This article in the @nytimes is a must read for any patient or support circle. Empower yourself as your best heath advocate.

Mission : Possible. 🐥

When Angela was diagnosed with MALT Lymphoma on Thanksgiving Day 2018, she (like most of us in the young adult cancer club) had no idea what the road to remission would like like.

Hearing treatment would impact her future fertility, she applied for and received a Hope grant from The Chick Mission to preserve her fertility. This option provides much needed peace of mind and security in a time when nothing felt certain.

Flash to 2022: Angela is cancer free and racing in the United Airlines Half Marathon in NYC. She is fundraising to give back to our organization so others in this community may receive support.

We are in awe of of you, A. Thank you for Sharing your story. We are celebrating health and with you every step you take on Sunday, March 20.
