Fertile Future subsidizes a portion of fertility preservation expenses for qualifying young adult cancer patients via the Power of Hope Program. Each year, an estimated 10,000 young Canadians face a cancer diagnosis. Approximately 8,000 of them will win this battle. Without knowing the importance of fertility preservation prior to their treatment, many are left infertile with few options. Fertile Future aspires to change this reality for cancer patients. Our mission is to inform, educate and support cancer patients who are facing fertility-risking medical treatment, and oncology professionals who are providing this care.
Fertile Future is a national charity that aspires to ensure every young Canadian diagnosed with cancer will have the opportunity and means to have a child.
Fertile Future will accomplish its vision by promoting awareness and understanding of fertility preservation among patients, the medical community, and the Canadian public. We will work with oncology & fertility groups across Canada to ensure young Canadians receive timely information on fertility preservation options. We will raise funds to help subsidize the costs of fertility preservation for young men and women until full funding is available by provincial health plans. We will actively advocate for public funding on behalf of cancer patients who may otherwise be denied the opportunity of having a family due to the high costs of fertility preservation.
