FCancer™ and The Oncofertility Consortium® have partnered to address the complex healthcare and quality of life issues that concern young cancer patients, their caregivers and healthcare providers today. Our goal is to educate people whose fertility may be threatened by their disease or it’s treatment about fertility preservation and to provide emotional support and education to expand current knowledge, clinical practice and training for a wide spectrum of issues to empower people to TAKE CHARGE of their fertility.

Teresa K. Woodruff, Ph.D. coins the term “oncofertility” and founds the Oncofertility Consortium. This NIH funded initiative represents a network of medical specialists, scientists and scholars who are exploring the relationships between health, disease, survivorship and fertility preservation in young cancer patients.

Survival rates among young cancer patients have steadily increased. Today, men, women and children can look forward to life after cancer, yet many may face the possibility of infertility as a result of the disease itself or these lifesaving treatments.
