Fertile Future Launches, 'An Evening of Hope'

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2012) - On Thursday May 10th, Fertile Future will be hosting a fundraising event called "An Evening of Hope", a remarkable evening of art and music at Hart House, Toronto presented by CTV personality and Hodgkin's lymphoma survivor Anwar Knight.

Attendees will have the extraordinary experience of a unique performance by artist Beckie DiLeo who will paint live to the inspiration of pianist Shoshana Telner.

The evening's feast for the senses continues with delectable food and wine. To round off the event, guests will enjoy a silent auction, which will include a variety of items and collectibles including artwork by the evening's performer Beckie DiLeo.

Co-Chair Andrea Unikowsky said, "After the success of our Ottawa events, I am so pleased to be launching Fertile Future's first Toronto event. We hope that An Evening of Hope will raise funds and awareness so we can continue to help cancer patients with their fertility options."

Fertile Future is a national non-profit organization, providing fertility preservation and information support services to cancer patients and oncology professionals.

For four years now, Fertile Future has been raising funds and awareness about the tragic reality that many young cancer survivors find themselves in - being made infertile from their chemotherapy, radiation or surgery. Not only do these young people face difficult treatment that interrupts their schooling, fresh careers or wedding plans - but many, if not made aware of their options, will find themselves unable to have children of their own.

Fertile Future's programs include Power of Hope, which helps subsidize the cost of fertility preservation for men and women prior to their treatments. Preserving their fertility can allow young cancer patients to experience the joy of having families of their own in the future.
