So the goal of the Oncofertility Consortium is really to increase the knowledge base of all physicians around the globe about the fertility threat of chemotherapeutics and radiation to ensure that young adults and children, both men and women who have a cancer diagnosis and are thinking about the next series of steps in their life, is that they include the topic of fertility and that if that cancer treatment is really going to affect their fertility that options are provided to them in a timely manner so that they can make a decision that is right for them. And then they move into their cancer therapy and then move onto their normal healthy life.
