Jewelry Trunk Show to Benefit CARE for Cancer Survivors

Feb. 17, 2012
Strong Fertility Center Program Supports Childbearing After Recovery
The Trunk Show features jewelry from Stella & Dot.

Strong Fertility Center of the University of Rochester Medical Center will host a fundraising jewelry show 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 29, to benefit patients of the Center’s fertility preservation program.

The Strong Fertility Center Fundraiser Trunk Show will feature jewelry from Stella & Dot, with many items priced under $50. Proceeds will go to Childbearing After Recovery (CARE), which helps couples plan ahead when faced with a cancer diagnosis, so that steps can be taken prior to cancer treatment to help preserve fertility for pregnancy following recovery.

The cost of fertility preservation treatment is often not covered by health insurance plans. Fund-raising efforts help to make more accessible to couples.

Strong Fertility Center is located at 500 Red Creek Drive in Rochester. For more information, please call (585) 487-3378.
