Livestrong Fertility was created for those whose cancer diagnosis may affect their ability to create or add to their families.

Preserving fertility for cancer patients

You deserve resources that can help you achieve your family goals. We have helped thousands of cancer patients gain access to these life-changing services by alleviating the burden of costly fertility preservation, which has an average of $12,000 for birthing parents and $700 for non-birthing parents.

The Livestrong Fertility Discount Program works with compassionate clinics nationwide that have all committed to at least a 25% service discount for qualifying patients. In addition, our partner EMD Serono provides free stimulation medication to patients approved through our programs.

In the midst of all the chaos, the financial burden of my fertility preservation felt very overwhelming. I’ll be forever thankful to Livestrong for taking that burden off me.
