“Thank you for the generous grant … towards the Oncofertility Program at UC San Diego and Dr. Irene Su’s research. With your support, we were able to purchase a research freezer to help understand how to preserve a woman’s ability to have children following cancer treatment. The freezer is much more than a piece of equipment, it signifies hope for many young women’s futures and we thank you for making it possible.”
