Op-ed: Fertility preservation reassurance during my cancer fight

I am a very happy person. As a white wife and daughter of a doctor, I had the chance to freeze my eggs, should I ever decide to have children. After chemotherapy, radiation, and a pulmonary embolism, I graduated from high school and entered college. Five years later, as I complete my second year of medicine, I appreciate my circumstances more than ever. Even as someone who still doesn’t plan to have children, I cannot emphasize enough how much comfort and security my fertility preservation brought during a period of such uncertainty.
