We fight to improve the lives of people affected by cancer
Join the LIVESTRONG Fertility Program
We invite your fertility center or sperm bank to partner with the LIVESTRONG Fertility program, which connects recently diagnosed cancer patients to discounted fertility preservation options before beginning cancer treatment. We help facilitate this process through LIVESTRONG’s navigation services, providing emotional and resource support for cancer patients and their loved ones.
Being a part of the LIVESTRONG Fertility program means giving cancer survivors the opportunity to plan for a family when they are ready. Participating centers offer discounted rates on egg freezing, embryo freezing and/or sperm banking services to cancer patients who meet diagnosis, treatment and income criteria.
When patients are interested in pursuing preservation, we connect them to participating centers and facilitate the entire patient application and approval process.
You can review the Patient Application form to become familiar with the patient eligibility criteria and approval process.
Note: There is no direct exchange of money or individual grants offered.
Why participate in LIVESTRONG Fertility?
- Participation is free and new agreements can be initiated at any time.
- By providing discounted preservation services, you will help increase awareness of and access to fertility preservation options for those facing cancer.
- LIVESTRONG oversees the application process and communicates approved patients to you in a timely and efficient manner
- Select pre-cycle medications are donated to through an exclusive relationship with EMD Serono, Inc.
