Livestrong

ReproTech and many of our freezing centers participate in LIVESTRONG’s Fertility Discount Program. Thanks to LIVESTRONG, we are able to provide financial assistance to cancer patients seeking fertility preservation services. Correctly completed applications for assistance are generally processed rapidly by LIVESTRONG and confirmation of acceptance is immediately sent by fax and/or e-mail to the applicant, the freezing center, ReproTech, as well as the oncologist. When viewing Search Results by tissue type, participating clinics will display LIVESTRONG below the clinic contact information.

Learn more about the program and application process for LIVESTRONG’s Fertility Discount Program.

Please note that cryopreservation fees vary by center, even when participating in LIVESTRONG’s Fertility Discount Programs. Also, many members of our Fertility Preservation Network discount cryopreservation fees for all cancer patients and therefore may not participate in LIVESTRONG Fertility Discount Programs, however, their fees may still be below those clinics which do participate. ReproTech’s financial assistance for storage fees through Verna’s Purse, when combined with a freezing center’s standard discounted fees for cancer patients make fertility preservation affordable for almost everyone.

We urge everyone to contact the clinics in their area to find the most convenient and affordable services available. Please click here to find a freezing center that participates in the LIVESTRONG Fertility Discount Program.

Verna’s Purse – Financial Assistance for Cancer Survivors

verna's purse

We believe in making fertility preservation services available to all individuals. That is especially true for the many people facing fertility threatening cancer treatments. The physical and emotional toll of battling cancer can be exhausting, and the financial cost of cancer treatments are significant. In light of this, cancer survivors are often the most in-need of financial assistance for fertility preservation.

We are proud to offer financial assistance for cancer survivors with ReproTech’s own charitable foundation: Verna’s Purse. With our financial assistance, we are able to help patients who are facing economic challenges related to their cancer treatments. At a time when additional financial burdens are hardest to handle, Verna’s Purse can offer new hope to those who thought beginning a family of their own was beyond their means.

Verna Hazelrigg was an incredible individual. She was a small town girl who enjoyed baseball, blue jeans and rodeo. She was endlessly generous with her time, her money and her love. July 9, 2000, at the young age of 36, Verna lost her battle with breast cancer, but her memory lives on through Verna’s Purse.

If you are questioning whether you can afford to preserve your fertility or maintain storage of your specimens, please download and review our application for financial relief. Verna would have liked nothing more than to be able to reach into her purse, one more time, and offer some help.
