Neuroblastoma and Fertility

Hi. I'm Julie, neuroblastoma survivor. They found my tumor in 1976 when I was 6 months old and stopped moving my legs (I live with partial paralysis as a result of the cancer). I was on chemo/radiation for 2 years.

My husband and I are trying to have a child. When the natural way wasn't working, I had some tests done, and it happens that my AMH (anti-mullerian hormone) is low, which basically means I don't have a lot in ovarian reserves. Has any other neuroblastoma survivor experienced this? Any advice would be welcome.

Thank you!

Hi Julie,

You should try posting your question to the N-Blast list on ACOR.org

ACOR is the american cancer online resource and there will find 100s of parents of kids with NB + adults with NB or survivors who can answer your question.

I wish you the best - and CONGRATs on being a survivor!! We know there's hope out there and you are the proof!
