Fertility Preservation: Egg Freezing and Breast Cancer Awareness Month
About 1 in 8 women (roughly 12% in 2014) in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. October is breast cancer awareness month and we, at CNY Fertility Center, would also like to help raise awareness for egg freezing.
“The ability for women to freeze their eggs allows for time to pursue life goals without worry of the fertility timeline. We have the technology available to offer women the peace of mind and empowerment that goes along with choosing when to start building your family.” –Dr. Robert Kiltz, owner and director of CNY Fertility Centers with numerous locations through the United States and Canada
