Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology (AYA) Program
Not long ago, the idea of starting a family after treatment would have been a fantasy for most cancer patients. Today, newly diagnosed young patients have access to the services of Northwestern’s full-time Patient Navigator for Fertility Preservation, dedicated to helping them understand and explore available options for preserving fertility before, during and after treatment.
The Lurie Cancer Center is committed to ensuring that every patient undergoing a treatment or procedure that could threaten their reproductive future is offered an oral and written explanation of their fertility preservation options.
