Support the Pregnancy & Cancer Registry
Through your support, we can continue to collect information about the diagnosis and treatment of cancer in pregnancy, helping women and their physicians make informed decisions about the pregnancy and cancer treatment. In addition, when funds are available we can offer developmental testing to children exposed to chemotherapy in utero or study different aspects of their growth such as dental health. Funding also supports the small staff who help Dr Cardonick gather records, plan new studies, and answer questions
Together, through research, we can work toward a day when women can focus on their pregnancy, not their cancer.
In this video from the 32nd Annual Miami Breast Cancer Conference, Elyce Cardonick, MD, discusses two poster presentations on childhood development and behavior after in utero exposure to chemotherapy for maternal cancer in pregnancy. View the video.
Pregnant women with any type of cancer can be enrolled.
Dr. Cardonick is available for consultation. This does not involve changing your current oncologist or obstetrician at all. In addition, you will not need to gather your medical information yourself, just provide written consent for your records to be requested. Enrollment in the Cancer and Pregnancy Registry is voluntary and confidential, and can help you, and newly diagnosed women facing cancer during pregnancy. Even if you have already delivered your baby, it is not too late to contribute your experience to the growing information about cancer and pregnancy in the Registry.
For more information about the Cancer and Pregnancy Registry please call (877) 635-4499.
