When you call the National Fertility Hotline, you talk with an expert in fertility management for cancer patients—both men and women—and they have the resources to be able to route you to the appropriate site that is near where you are. So you can go to a site that hopefully is near to your home so you’re not having to delay cancer treatment as a consequence of your seek for fertility sparing options. And our goal is to expand the National Physicians Cooperative beyond even the 49 sites we have so that we really raise the awareness of all oncologists and all fertility specialists so that patients can be routed very quickly and easily no matter where they live.
