Headquartered in New York City, Fertile Hope is a national nonprofit organization that provides reproductive information to cancer patients whose medical treatments present the risk of infertility. With members and doctors in Houston, this organization is helping cancer survivors have families of their own.

Fertile Hope was founded in October 2001 by Lindsay Nohr, a cancer survivor who sought to preserve her fertility when she was undergoing critical cancer treatments. Partnered with the Lance Armstrong Foundation, Fertile Hope is also dedicated to providing hope and support in fertility matters with cancer patients.

Chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and other possible medical treatments all have the potential to cause permanent infertility. The world-class team of business, medical and scientific professionals aims to help patients through programs and services that focus on awareness, education, financial assistance, research and support.

With Fertile Hope, there are several ways to get involved. By becoming a member, you can gain free educational resources and information about educational initiatives, the latest research and much more. Members are also given information about volunteering and fund-raising opportunities. The four types of membership include patients and survivors; friends and family; healthcare professionals and Fertile Hope supporters. H
