After a shock cancer diagnosis in his twenties, having children was the last thing on Nick’s mind, but he is so grateful now that he agreed to freeze sperm prior to chemotherapy.
Fertility patients will now be able to store their frozen embryos, sperm and eggs for up to 55 years following a change in the law (1 July 2022). Previously storage was for just 10 years.
After a diagnosis with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, John chose to freeze his sperm. Five years later, he and wife Claire started IVF treatment at Bourn Hall.
