Founded in 1997 by cancer survivor and champion cyclist Lance Armstrong, LIVESTRONG connects individuals to the support they need, leverages funding and resources to spur innovation and engages communities and leaders to drive social change
LIVESTRONG SurvivorCare is a one-on-one support program to help cancer survivors learn about cancer and their fertility risks, address financial, insurance and employment issues and connect to new treatments in development.
Fertile Hope is a national LIVESTRONG initiative dedicated to providing reproductive information, support and hope to cancer patients and survivors whose medical treatments present the risk of infertility.
The Sharing Hope program increases access to fertility preservation options for men and women who are diagnosed with cancer. Because these costs can be high and finances may already be limited due to cancer treatments, the LIVESTRONG Sharing Hope program has partnered with fertility centers and sperm banks across the US to offer discounted rates for these services. Also, has information on the Adoption Tax Credit and other programs and services to help increase access to adoption.
The LIVESTRONG Guidebook offers guidance through the cancer experience from the moment of diagnosis, during cancer treatment and after treatment. The LIVESTRONG Guidebook Planner and Journal provides worksheets and calendars to help plan and keep track of the cancer journey. Visit LIVESTRONG.org/CancerSupport for these cancer resources and support services and more.
The LIVESTRONG Care Plan is a tool to help patients work with their oncologist and primary healthcare provider to address the medical and psychosocial challenges that may arise post-treatment. By answering some questions related to cancer treatment, you will receive information about follow-up care, symptoms to watch for and steps to take to stay healthy. Go to www.LIVESTRONGCarePlan.org to learn more.
