A young women in her 20's who is still in college finds out that she has acute myeloid leukemia. She needs to decide to freeze her eggs because with the chemotherapy treatment gives her infertility. Her boyfriend agrees to freeze embryos, but in the end she only freezes her eggs. She figured that she did not want to create possible life if she was not sure if she was going to survive herself. Fertility costs a lot, but she received a scholarship from Fertile Hope that aids cancer patients and survivors. Her whole life was put on hold from a disease that you usually only get when your older.
I was interested in this article because i didn't know that chemotherapy made women infertile.
