  • Teresa K. Woodruff
Part of the Cancer Treatment and Research book series (CTAR, volume 138)

The following personal accounts, provided by the patient advocacy group Fertile Hope, demonstrate how cancer and possible associated infertility can influence cancer patients’ and survivors’ sense of self and their life plans and goals. As research continues in the area of oncofertility, we hope to add to this base of knowledge of the impact of cancer-related infertility on the survivorship experiences of those diagnosed with cancer.
