Fertile Hope Programs & Services Acquired by LIVESTRONG

Fertile Hope is pleased to announce its’ programs and services have been acquired by the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF).

The decision to pass along Fertile Hope – my life’s work and the organization that helped me fulfill my own parenthood dreams – was not made lightly. The LAF’s commitment to join forces and leverage the LIVESTRONG platform for fertility represents a powerful next step in the evolution of Fertile Hope, and an opportunity to better meet the reproductive needs of cancer patients and survivors going forward.

We plan to work diligently over the next 6 months to strategize on the best ways to leverage both organizations’ strengths to best meet the reproductive needs of cancer patients and survivors. We look forward to unveiling our plans in the near future. In the meantime, the LAF will maintain critical Fertile Hope programs including the website, hotline, financial assistance program (Sharing Hope) and brochure order fulfillment. You can continue to access our services as you always have online or by calling (866) 994-HOPE.

This is truly a historic moment for the organization and we welcome your ideas as we embark on great things. Read more


  1. Lindsay,

    Congradulations on what must have been a very hard decision to make.

    You have created an excellent example that I hope other organizations will follow. Ultimately, young adult patients will not benefit from more organizations thinking bigger, but from fewer organizations thinking better. What an incredible achievement you have made both in founding Fertile Hope and in letting it grow into its next phase.
