April 5th, 2014 | Sperm Freezing to Preserve Fertility after Cancer Diagnosis

“As treatments for childhood cancers have improved, more and more survivors are
entering their reproductive years, and are thinking about starting families of
their own. Unfortunately, impaired fertility can be an unwanted consequence of
the treatments used to cure pediatric cancer. The Cancer Survivorship Program at
The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia recognizes that fertility is an
extremely important issue related to long-term quality of life for our
survivors.

Thought must be given to whether a child’s fertility is likely
to be impacted by treatment. Ideally, this should occur before the start of
therapy, when a window of opportunity may exist to preserve the patient’s future
reproductive potential.

The Cancer Survivorship Program is very invested
in offering fertility preservation options to the patients and families who are
seen at the CHOP Cancer Center. We offer fertility preservation options to
pre-pubertal and pubertal males and females. This video is focused on sperm
banking as an option for pubertal boys who will soon begin cancer treatment.”
