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.

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.
