Life After Cancer…

PRESERVING SURVIVORS’ FERTILITY

 

Briefing for Legislators, Staff, and Advocates

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

1:30-3:00 PM

State Capitol, Room 444, Sacramento 

 

  • Did you know 140,000 young people between ages 0-45 are diagnosed with cancer each year?
  • Did you know that chemotherapy and radiation – common therapies for cancer – can cause infertility?
  • Did you know recent reproductive technologies have improved success rates and made it possible for cancer patients to preserve fertility before they undergo cancer treatments?
  • Did you know cancer isn’t the only disease that affects fertility?

 

Dr. Mitch Rosen, Director, University of California San Francisco Reproductive Laboratories and Fertility Preservation Program and clinical reproductive endocrinologist will present research on how certain medical therapies compromise fertility, currently used preservation procedures, and patient choices. 

 

Sponsored by Assembly Member Anthony Portantino (Author, AB 428) and American Society for Reproductive Medicine
