Freezing eggs.? Well, my eggs may already be frozen (or as my good friend likes to say, hers are already cooked), but at our late age it is never too late to learn about your options since 1) the right man has never come along 2) your job(s) have taken over your life 3) you can’t imagine going through life without a child and 4) you still have hope.
Next week Great Possibilities Egg Freezing and Fertility Agency presents their inaugural event “ON ICE,” a free and informative party for women ages 30 to 40 who are interested in freezing their eggs for fertility preservation and/or delayed family planning. “ON ICE” will offer a casual social setting with wine, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres allowing guests to learn about egg freezing from highly trained medical professionals and speak with other women who have participated in the program.
During the panel discussion cancer survivor Christine Hoffman will share her story of having recieved donated eggs from co-founder Wendie Wilson-Miller. Wendie had frozen her eggs but was able to get pregnant naturally, so she ended up donating her eggs to her friend Christine, who now has a beautiful little girl.
The cocktail party will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Great Possibilities Co-Founder Wendie Wilson-Miller. The first panel will include Great Possibilities Co-Founder Shalene Petricek along with Cancer Survivor Christine Hoffman who will share their unique stories. The second panel will feature Dr. Vicken Sahakian and Dr. Carrie Wambach who will share how technology has vastly improved and why now is the time to consider cryopreservation.
Great Possibilities experts have negotiated the most affordable egg freezing cycles for egg preservation in the country with some of the top fertility specialists as well as offering fast and easy financing options.
