Young adults today are focused on pursuing an education, building a career, starting a family, and achieving financial independence. Very few young adults are prepared, financially or emotionally, for a cancer diagnosis or life–saving cancer treatments that may result in the loss of fertility. The costs of treatment and of fertility preservation are significant obstacles for young people, who carry an average $30,000 in debt. Few insurance carriers will cover the cost of infertility procedures, such as in–vitro fertilization and oocyte preservation.
THRIVE believes that one’s financial status should not determine the possibility of having a family after successful cancer treatments. We are wholly funded by generous individuals like you. Every dollar you give stays in the Central Texas region and assists young adults wishing to pursue fertility preservation resulting from a cancer diagnosis. Your contribution to THRIVE goes directly towards supporting young adults and their dream of starting or continuing family planning initiatives. Donate now.
