Making An Impact in Fertility Preservation Legislation in Maryland

Making An Impact in Fertility Preservation Legislation in Maryland - blog post image

One of the many objectives the Alliance for Fertility Preservation has been to share stories of those who have been diagnosed with or survived cancer and faced family-building challenges as a result. We aim to share these stories not only with other newly-diagnosed patients and survivors so they can learn about their options but also, to help create real change in terms creating access to those who need it. Our focus has particularly been several fertility preservation bills introduced in states across the nation and today, we’re so incredibly thrilled to announce that an important bill impacting cancer patients in Maryland has passed.

Please see the press release from the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, who we want to thank for their tireless work on this life changing legislation. We also want to thank our fellow advocates who we worked alongside with to make this happen. They are Johns Hopkins, University of Maryland, and the Shady Grove Fertility Clinic.

We also want to take this moment to remind you that whether you are a survivor, considering family-building options or a newly-diagnosed patient thinking about fertility preservation, we want to hear from you! We are here to support you, offer you resources, connect you to other patients and services that you need. Thank you!
