The Oncofertility Consortium was highlighted in the Spring 2015 issue of Northwestern Medicine Magazine in the article “Moving Beyond Cancer“.  In this issue, Holly and Richard Manprisio, and their journey to build a family, are highlighted.  Holly conquered stage 4 Hodgkins lymphoma when she was just 13 and was followed closely by the STAR Survivorship Program at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital.  At age 28 she was faced with a breast cancer diagnosis and was able to bank eggs before undergoing chemotherapy, radiation, and further treatment with Tamoxifen.  Happily, Holly and Richard have welcomed twin boys, Ethan and Benjamin into the world thanks to the Oncofertility Consortium, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s HospitalSTAR Program and Northwestern Medicine!
