In early October, Chai Lifeline Canada, in collaboration with Small Wonders, presented “Fertility After Treatment”. Through discussion of medical, religious and emotional aspects, we aimed to offer hope for the future fertility options for families whose children who have been through cancer treatment. By bringing together a panel of experts from different fields, it was a unique opportunity to access options and resources.
The online presentation was recorded and we are pleased to make it available here in it’s entirety to watch the video or listen to the audio recording below.
