Our Hope Scholarship Grant Program will continue to help women diagnosed with cancer in Austin make the choice to preserve her future family options before cancer makes the decision for her.
The Texas Cancer Registry estimates approximately 7,676 young adults in Texas will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Without insurance many will not be able to afford to preserve their fertility as it can cost up to $20,000 for a single round of egg freezing out of pocket.
In the State House, Representative Nicole Collier has proposed HB 293 that would mandate health insurance policies in many companies across the state.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to learn how to help or visit www.thechickmission.org for a format letter you may send to your own state representative to urge them to support bill HB 293 and co-sponsor the legislation.
No one has signed up yet, but you could be the first!
