Hope Live 2012
In honour of this year’s Hope Live, which is happening tonight, let’s revisit last year’s amazing show!!
Fertile Future strives to inform every young Canadian cancer patient about their fertility preservation options and the long-term health care issues associated with cancer treatments.
Each year, an estimated 10,000 young Canadians face a cancer diagnosis. Approximately 8,000 of them will win this battle. Without knowing the importance of fertility preservation prior to their treatment, many are left infertile with few options.
Fertile Future aspires to enrich the lives of young people diagnosed with cancer by promoting awareness and understanding of fertility preservation and survivor health care issues. Fertile Future also works to educate health care practitioners on providing timely information on fertility preservation options and long-term health care issues, as well as raise knowledge and awareness about these key issues across Canada.
Hosted by Rick Mercer, the event was full of laughs, great music (performances included singer/songwriter Jann Arden) and hope for the future.
Have a wonderful day,
