Hello Vancity: Genesis Fertility Centre – “Egg Freezing: Get Informed”

On Tuesday November 4, our clinic hosted an informal egg freezing information event for professional women at Coast Restaurant. The event was created for women to learn about the science behind egg freezing, information that may help them when they make their family planning decisions. In addition, the information session was a unique opportunity for people to discuss reproductive health outside a clinical setting and meet patients who have experienced fertility issues.

Yumi Ang of Hello Vancity was at the event and had a chance to speak with our medical director, Dr. Sonya Kashyap, as well as two patients who were willing to share their struggles with infertility. Here is Yumi’s take on how fertility planning affects professional women.

The Province & Vancouver Desi: Vancouver fertility centre helps those facing cancer treatment still have babies

White Rock resident Anna Kashani has an amazing story to tell. At the age of 29, she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. Although receiving the news of cancer was painful, being told that she had no time for fertility preservation was unbearable.

We were honoured to be able to help Anna and her fiancé Marlon Azurdia by increasing her chances of conceiving in the future. Anna had nine embryos frozen at our clinic before receiving her first dose of chemotherapy treatment last month.
