Approximately 130,000 of people diagnosed with cancer in the United States each year are in their reproductive years and 1,000,000 cancer survivors are diagnosed during their reproductive years. Whether you're a newly diagnosed cancer patient, a survivor, or loved one of someone suffering from infertility, this book offers help. The only text available to provide both the doctor's and patient's views, 100 Questions & Answers About Cancer & Fertility, provides practical, authoritative answers to 100 of the most common questions asked by cancer patients and survivors about fertility. Written by an ObGyn/reproductive medicine specialist and cancer/fertility patient advocate, with commentary from actual patients, this is an invaluable resource for anyone struggling with the medical, physical, and emotional turmoil of cancer and infertility. "I am a cancer survivor but I am also a Dad. When I look at my three beautiful children and realize that they would not be here if I wasn't told to bank my sperm, I feel overwhelmed with gratitude. They are my life they are my legacy. Every cancer survivor deserves the chance to be a parent, and this book can make it happen!" - Lance Armstrong Chairman Lance Armstrong Foundation See the interview from the "Today" show with authors Lindsay Nohr Beck and Kutluk H.Oktay See the interview from the "Today" show with authors Lindsay Nohr Beck and Kutluk H.Oktay
