Insurance Didn’t Cover Fertility Preservation

The St. Louis affiliate of Fox News told the story of a cancer survivor on a July 15 broadcast. They highlighted a patient who underwent ovarian tissue cryopreservation at the Infertility Center of St. Louis at St. Luke's Hospital. More than ten years later,  pieces of that ovary were transplanted back into the same patient, now a cancer survivor, and a healthy baby boy was born in late May. In the broadcast, the patient advocates for insurance companies to cover the cost of fertility preservation treatments that are needed to counteract the effects of cancer therapy.
