Lymphoma and Fertility Support

"My husband and I were not only facing the possibility of losing his life, but that if and when he did recover, we would be facing the loss of the wonderful experience of having a child together." Lisa, wife of cancer survivor.

Cancer treatments can cause infertility. Chemotherapy, radiation and surgery can all affect your reproductive system. In general, the higher the dose and the longer the treatment, the greater the chance for reproductive problems. Your age, the type and dose of drugs, the location and dose of radiation, the scope and location of surgery, your pre-cancer fertility status, and other factors can influence your risk

Fertile Hope is a national non-profit organization providing information, support and hope regarding cancer and fertility through programs of awareness, education, financial assistance, research and emotional support.
