The Cancer Center at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Recognized for Educating Patients About Cancer-Related Infertility

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is the first pediatric hospital to be designated a Fertile Hope Center of Excellence. The Cancer Center at Children's Hospital leads the nation in fertility preservation for pediatric patients diagnosed with cancer.

The first of its kind in the nation, the Cancer Survivorship Program is an integral part of Children's Hospital's Cancer Center. A multi-disciplinary team of experts offer fertility preservation options to both prepubertal and pubertal males and females. Each fertility preservation option has been researched extensively, and results provide the cornerstone of clinical practice.

"Now that nearly 80 percent of children survive cancer, our goal is to maximize their quality of life," said Jill Ginsberg, M.D., director of the Cancer Survivorship Program at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Cancer Center. "Before research showed otherwise, the perception was that pediatric cancer patients and their families could not cope with making decisions about fertility preservation on the heels of diagnosis. We now know that is not the case."

Ginsberg added, "We are proud to have been recognized for our efforts by being designated a Fertile Hope Center of Excellence."

A nonprofit organization that helps cancer patients faced with infertility, Fertile Hope has designed its Center of Excellence Program to ensure that all age-appropriate cancer patients are informed of their fertility risks before undergoing treatment.

"Children's Hospital's hands-on approach to meeting their pediatric patient's fertility concerns as well as their practical needs exemplifies the type of commitment that Fertile Hope's COE program was designed to recognize," s
