New to PPC - Eggs freezing

Posts: 1
Joined: Jul 2011

I am in Upstate New York in the Rochester area.
Am a new patient of PPC. Primary Peritoneal Cancer.
Will start Chemo soon.
I have read about free eggs freezing for cancer patients by an Institute called
SHER Institute for Reproductive Medicine. They are in the East Coast, West Coast and other locations.
Does anyone know of similar institute in Upstate New York area?
Please reply.

So sorry you had to join us but you are certainly welcome. I dont know anything about the freezing eggs thing but it sounds very helpful. I have 2 young daughters that would certainly be interested if they were in our shoes. There are several young girls on this and the ovarian board that will probably be able to help you.
Do feel free to share your thoughts, experiences, and questions. This is a great place for support and information.

I was thinking: what if you were to contact the SHER Institute for Reproductive Medicine in one of the other locations. They would be sure to know if there was one near to you.

Just a thought.

I'd also talk to an expert in reproductive technology.

Take good care,
