Young women's lives are put on hold when they have cancer and during treatment.
For many young women treatment doesn’t always end with chemotherapy. Some undergo five to ten years of endocrine therapy to reduce the risk of their cancer coming back. While on this treatment they are advised not to conceive because the medication may be toxic to the fetus. And doctors don’t yet know the impact of women taking a break from endocrine therapy to get pregnant. Some young women are already taking the risk on their own. We need answers so they can make informed decisions for their future.
