Save The Eggs Purpose:

The Save the Eggs Benefit Cocktails 2010 is the third annual fundraising effort to increase awareness of egg harvesting. Our mission is to secure funds for women unable to cover the expense of saving their eggs when faced with the possibility of infertility due to chemo therapy--specifically in the treatment of Breast Cancer. NEW THIS YEAR-Since Spring 2008 Save the Eggs has given monies to the national non-profit Fertile Hope each year as a result of its fundraisers. Fertile Hope was obtained by the Lance Armstrong Foundation, one of its partners, in the late Spring of 2009. This year's funds received will go to Lance Armstrong Foundation--for its dedication to Cancer survivors and its belief in fertility preservation.
