A diagnosis of cancer is devastating on so many different levels. Often patients are so overwhelmed that the last thing they think about is getting on with their life once treatment is past. This would include taking action now to preserve their option to have children after cancer. Host Dawn Davenport talks with Dr. Michelle Ottey, Laboratory Director for Fairfax Cryobank, who works with male cancer patients; Dr. Stephen Lincoln, Medical Director of the Fertility Preservation Center for Cancer Patients at the Genetics and IVF Institute; and Lauren Haring, Director and Co-Founder of the Fertility Preservation Center for Cancer Patients at GIVF.

Sara R. Cohen is a Toronto lawyer called to the Ontario Bar in 2007. Sara is a fertility law lawyer based in Toronto, but with clients throughout Canada and beyond. She approaches fertility law with the compassion, empathy and respect it deserves. Sara's passion is to help build families and she considers herself very fortunate to have such a fulfilling career.
Sara studied law at Osgoode Hall Law School where she took as many courses relating to reproductive technology, health law, bioethics and sexuality and the law as were available. For as long as she can remember, Sara has been passionate about third party reproductive technology and the law. So, after a number of years spent honing her skills as an advocate by working as a lawyer in the Commercial Litigation Group of one of Canada's preeminent national firms, Sara made the leap and translated her passion into a career. Sara regularly acts on behalf of intended parents, surrogate mothers, egg donors, sperm donors, donor recipients, and other people involved with reproductive technologies. She also provides legal advice to domestic and international businesses in the fertility industry.
Most importantly, Sara is a mother. It is her love of this role that inspired her to make the leap from Bay Street and use her skills, knowledge, passion and compassion to assist others in building their families, too.
