If cancer does anything for you, it makes you learn how to ask for help.

Here are some of the websites that I have used.

LIVESTRONG Fertility
LIVESTRONG helped me preserve my fertility. My cancer treatments will damage or kill my eggs, so I had to have my eggs taken out before my treatment began. This process is very expensive! LIVESTRONG helped by paying for most of my meds and paid for 25 percent of the costs to go through IVF at an approved fertility clinic.

Heart Beat Program
The Heart Beat Program is offered by Ferring Pharmaceuticals and Walgreens Pharmacy. The program provides free medications for egg and embryo freezing for women who are newly diagnosed with cancer. The meds that LIVESTRONG did not provide, the Heart Beat Program did. They also provided one-on-one training on how to inject the medicine, which was invaluable, since they don’t show you in the doctor’s office. I can’t find a link to its site, but my endocrinologist filled out the paperwork for me.
