Team DFTB. Preserving fertility in oncology patients: Dan Yeomanson at DFTB19, Don't Forget the Bubbles, 2020. Available at:
Dan Yeomanson is a paediatric oncologist dealing with teenagers and young people with cancer. Whilst the future ability to become a parent is not something that immediately springs to mind when a new diagnosis of cancer is made, you can be sure it is on the mind of the parents and the patient in front of you.
Of the ten patients that are diagnosed with cancer on any given day in England, eight will survive and one will be rendered infertile by their treatment.

This talk was recorded live at DFTB19 in London, England. With the theme of “The Journey” we wanted to consider the journeys our patients and their families go on, both metaphorical and literal.
