Who is the Coalition to Protect Parenthood After Cancer (CPPAC)

The Coalition to Protect Parenthood After Cancer (CPPAC) is a collaboration between patient advocates, academic researchers, health care professionals and companies working to preserve the opportunity for parenthood after treatment for cancer and other diseases by raising awareness of this option into the doctor/patient conversation, as well as by advocating for insurance coverage of fertility preservation, thus helping patients have biological children in the future.

The mission of CPPAC is to ensure everyone who needs fertility preservation medical treatment to prevent iatrogenic infertility due to cancer or other disease has access to that treatment, and that it is covered by health insurance as the standard of care.


What is CPPAC trying to accomplish?

CPPAC’s goals are to:

Advocate for changes in policy to achieve fertility preservation coverage by insurance companies

Increase the number of self-insured companies that offer fertility preservation coverage to their employees

Bring together stakeholders to unify efforts and maximize impact
