Interview: Emily Eargle of the Live Strong Fertile Hope Initiative on Chemo & Fertility

Some young cancer patients learn that chemotherapy can have a strong impact on fertility before they begin chemotherapy, some learn during and sadly some do not discover this until their treatment is complete. Fertility is not just one more thing cancer seeks to rob from us, but this particular blow can feel unexpected, and can take the wind out of a patient’s sails. The Livestrong Foundation’s Fertile Hope Initiative offers support, information and access to programs in an effort to empower the patient where ever they are in the treatment process. Miss Emily Eargle helps us tackle this tough subject as she highlights the programs the Fertile Hope Initiative developed in response to the challenges faced by these patients. They work to restore the hope for a future family after chemotherapy. Come listen for a breath of fresh air as well as some well needed hope.
