Sarah's Story: Starting a Family After Diagnosis

header-img-sarah

"I thought that becoming a mom wasn't a possibility anymore."

Meet Sarah and Lilly. LIVESTRONG helped Sarah, a two-time breast cancer survivor, find out about low-cost fertility preservation services so she could start a family. Here's her personal story. 

Patients diagnosed with cancer during their reproductive years are often not informed about their fertility risks and options. A free, online training developed by LIVESTRONG is now available to help support nurses and their care teams in providing patient-centered care and meeting clinical quality care standards. 

This program made possible by the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas, #PP120225.

 
Cancer Education for Every Nurse

In the U.S., cancer is the second-leading cause of death. Cancers that can be detected earlier by screening account for about half of all new cancer cases (American Cancer Society, 2014).

NOEP provides evidence-based continuing education to nurses on cancer prevention, detection, treatment, and survivorship. Our goal is to educate all nurses to create changes in nursing practice.

We partner with expert nurse clinicians and faculty from leading academic institutions to develop cutting edge programs, and conduct post-education evaluation and outcome measurement follow up to ensure those programs are effective. 

NOEP is a nonprofit project of the Texas Nurses Association/Foundation.
