They're founded by women who have been there. Chick Mission was starter after their founder and CEO Amanda Rice experienced her own battle with cancer and plenty of oncofertility frustrations with her insurance provider. She was denied insurance coverage because her insurance stated she was not infertile "yet," even though she was about to undergo lifesaving cancer treatment that would jeopardize her fertility.
They're playing the long game. Not only does Chick Mission provide real-time funding for newly diagnosed cancer patients' fertility preservation, but also they're on a mission to create long-term change with mandated insurance coverage of fertility preservation across the U.S.
The numbers speak for themselves. Chick Mission has fully funded over 400 women's fertility preservation since February 14, 2018. They have saved women and their families over $6 million by not only covering the cost of fertility preservation, but also doing so at a discounted rate lower than the market standard as out-of-pocket fertility preservation can cost upwards of $20,000.
