Article in Houston B.A.B.Y. Magazine
[Edited 11/26/08: We now have a copy of the article in PDF format on our BabyLater.com site. Read it here...]
I'm featured in an article for Houston B.A.B.Y. Magazine, a publication of Houston Family Magazine. The October issue is available in digital format here (click on the cute baby face cover), and you can find print issues at Krogers, and in OB/Gyn and pediatrician offices.
The article is called "From Cancer to Parenthood: Reproductive Expert Helps Survivors Create New Life" and includes a pretty interesting photo of Dr. Stoddart in the lab.
I'm glad the feature highlights my efforts at bridging the gaps between oncologists and reproductive specialists. Patients are the prospective losers if the facts about fertility preservation aren't immediately available at that very first discussion about cancer treatment. Making those physician-to-physician connections well in advance of patient need will be the key to enabling more survivors to become parents later.
Please feel free to share this article with your physicians and friends.
For easy sharing by email and for printing, I recommend this: find the article on page 16, click on the article title words "From Cancer to Parenthood" to display the article in easy-print format. From there, you also have options to post the article on your Facebook, MySpace, and other favorites. (Technology is great, but tricky at times...)
