Make a Difference through Philanthropy. Give to the Oncofertility Consortium!
The Oncofertility Consortium is a comprehensive program that addresses the needs of young cancer patients who want to preserve their fertility. Our efforts are supported by funds from private philanthropy, government and institutional grants, and patient service revenue. While every source of funding is important, private philanthropic support is especially vital to our success. Thanks to the generosity of friends and patients, we address the complex health care and quality-of-life issues that concern young cancer patients who fertility may be threatened by disease or treatment.
We invite you to help us achieve our daily goals in patient care, research, and education. Your commitment would advance promising research; recruit talented physician-scientists; develop new educational programs or expand our existing ones. Each gift truly makes a difference. In the past year, the Oncofertility Consortium funded the following:
- Existing research studies
- Pilot research examining new avenues in oncofertility
- Patient navigation so every cancer patient knows his or her fertility options
- Education programs for high-school girls to learn about science, their bodies, and oncofertility
For your convenience, a few giving options are available, including outright gifts of cash, appreciated assets such as securities, or pledges payable over a three- to five-year period. We greatly appreciate your interest and support of our efforts. Thank you!
Give so every parent of a cancer survivor can become a grandparent.
Our final metric of success will be the number of babies born from cancer survivors who would have been childless without oncofertility.
