At the Alliance for Fertility Preservation, we believe that young people with cancer deserve autonomy and
choice in their reproductive future. A consultation from a physician about fertility risks and preservation
options can help patients make informed decisions before undergoing fertility-threatening cancer treatment.
We are a non-profit organization committed to helping cancer patients get the information they need about fertility preservation. All of our services are designed to assist patients and providers, and are offered free of charge. To learn more about us, click here.
We created Fertility ScoutTM to expedite the referral process to fertility specialists. Cancer care providers
and patients can locate fertility preservation clinics on our site and submit a referral on safe, secure servers.
Please note that all of the information about a clinic or sperm bank and the services that they provide was submitted to the Alliance by the facility itself. We recommend that patients or oncology providers who have questions or concerns about a facility or its services inquire directly to better understand a facility's experience and procedures, especially when considering experimental services, which should be offered under IRB-approval.
Patients and cancer care providers can submit an online appointment request. Only the minimum information needed for the appointment is gathered.
The designated fertility preservation contact at the selected sperm bank or reproductive clinic receives an email alert once a new referral is submitted and signs on to a secure web portal to view the appointment request.
All of the facilities listed in our system understand the emergency nature of fertility preservation needs for cancer patients. They have entered into an agreement to respond to the patient directly, by phone, within 48 hours to schedule an appointment. If the patient does not receive a phone call in 48 hours, he or she should call the fertility preservation clinic.
