Pregnancy after breast cancer diagnosis: help us make it happen!

Help Rethink bring the Baby Time study to Canada.

From all of our experience working with young women with breast cancer we know that fertility is one of the most important issues to them. Drugs administered during cancer treatment, as well as to protect against recurrence following treatment, can have adverse effects on a woman’s reproductive system.

Help us understand the challenges some women face when trying to get pregnant after breast cancer.

We need to raise $100,000+ over the next 4 years to support this work with a goal of raising $25,000 in 2015 to get the trial started.
