When faced with a cancer diagnosis as a young adult, the last thing you expect is to make a quick decision about sperm-banking or egg preservation. After treatment ends and the dust begins to settle, you’re faced with questions that your peers are likely not considering, ‘Am I still able to have kids naturally?’, ‘Will I pass on genes to my children that put them at risk for cancer’ or ‘How do I tell someone I’m dating that I’m infertile?’ In this episode, the young adults talk about fertility and fertility preservation and life afterwards.
