   ISSN (Print) 2157-1732 - ISSN (Online) 2157-1740
   Published by Project MUSE Homepage  [294 journals]
  • Editors' Note
    • Abstract: We are pleased to publish the second issue of volume seven of Narrative Inquiry in Bioethics (NIB). This symposium includes 15 personal narratives. There are 12 stories that appear in print and an additional three are available in the online supplement. The stories are from people who have faced a cancer diagnosis—either their own or their child's—where the treatment threatened future fertility. NIB co–editor in chief, Ana Iltis served as the narrative symposium editor for this issue. She, along with other members of the NIB editorial staff, wrote the call for stories and invited Teresa Woodruff, Bryan Sisk, and Becket Gremmels to write commentary articles on these narratives. The three are experts in ovarian ... Read More

  • Cancer and Fertility
    • Abstract: Cancer therapies have become much more effective, which means that many more people are living longer with the adverse effects that often accompany successful cancer treatment, such as harm to the cardiovascular system, bones, kidneys, and impaired fertility. Infertility, sterility, and sub–fertility may arise from treatments themselves, such as the removal of the testicles or ovaries, or from side–effects of cancer therapies (Fallat & Hutter 2008). Oncofertility is the interdisciplinary field that has emerged to address comprehensively the fertility issues cancer patients face. The goals include developing therapies that are less likely to impair fertility, improving fertility preservation options for patients ... Read More

  • Single Base Life
    • Abstract: I was a child that knew what she wanted: a career in the creative field, a house overlooking the ocean with a wraparound porch, a husband who was tall, and children to have adventures with. As I experienced the pains of growing up, I learned that knowing how to hit a curve ball is just as important as a life plan.At the age of 22, I was on track: I graduated at the top of my class from my dream college, met my sweetheart, moved across the country to New York, succeeded in grad school, established a flourishing career, and moved into our first home together.Then I was diagnosed with Stage 2a Thyroid cancer. I did not plan for that.I didn't know what to do or who to tell. I didn't want my life interrupted. I was ... Read More

  • A Biological Child Does Not Repair the Injustice of Breast Cancer at a
           Young Age
    • Abstract: I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in November 2010, at the age of 30. The diagnosis came totally unexpected. I was really young and there was not a single case of breast cancer in my family. In addition, I did not have any germline mutation increasing the risk of developing the disease. In the course of two weeks, my life changed forever. One of the first things that came across my mind upon hearing that the lump I had found in my breast could be cancer was that, if this were confirmed and I were lucky enough not to die soon, I would have to face an extremely uncertain future. My fears turned out to be a sad reality: not only because I had breast cancer, but I also found out that available treatments ... Read More

  • The Fire Cancer
    • Abstract: Would you prefer to be called Aunt Margaret or Auntie Maggie'" my brother's voice crackles through the line. He and his wife are pregnant with their first. I'm ecstatic, but as I tell my husband he is going to be Uncle Tony, I silently pray that the chemotherapy I just finished won't prevent us from someday having our own children. A text from my brother's wife reads, "Thank you for being so happy for us. I thought you would be sad."Sad' No. Ecstatically happy' Not entirely. As I held both the glee and the sorrow, the interstitial space between them reminded me that though cancer kills much joy, it cannot kill hope.My breast cancer diagnosis came the same day my now husband proposed. As such, we were keen to ... Read More

  • Don't Focus on Statistics
    • Abstract: March 12, 1982 was the worst day of my life. Our son was 19 months old and he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL); our family's lives changed forever. In a space of 24 hours we were told our baby might die, and that if he lived, he probably would be sterile—two predictions of unequal weight but of horrifying impact. I have a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology/Child Development and my husband has four older children from a previous marriage, so we had thought we had some idea about child rearing. But with this terrifying diagnosis, neither of us had any idea how the future would unfold for our beautiful, bright, verbal, jolly little boy. In hindsight, we know we were lucky, but 34 years ago we were ... Read More

  • My Story of Cancer Infertility
    • Abstract: April 9, 2005 was one of the best days ever. I was marrying my college sweetheart. Just over a year later, we decided to start a family. We had some difficulties at first. My cycles were never regular, until I began using various forms of birth control in my early 20s. I had been diagnosed with fibrocystic breast disease and polycystic ovarian syndrome in my late 20s early 30s. We tried unsuccessfully without any assistance for 7 months before I begin taking Clomid and eventually, Metformin. For 6 months, it was a rigorous cycle of taking medications, having vaginal ultrasounds and lab work drawn, with no positive results.

  • My 18 Little Miracles
    • Abstract: On May 9, 2016, I took my last law school final exam. After three grueling years of law school, there were no words to describe how excited I was to graduate and could not wait to celebrate that weekend. However, I had been feeling sick for two weeks and was severely fatigued, but I thought it was the usual exam stress. Just to be safe, I made an appointment with my doctor to ensure I would be well for my law school graduation on May 14, 2016.What I expected to be a regular doctor's appointment turned out to be a life changing event. I explained my symptoms to my doctor and she performed a physical examination. She noticed an unusual lump above my left clavicle. She appeared concerned and made an immediate ... Read More

  • Cancer Isn't Fair
    • Abstract: Cancer most definitely isn't fair, and those who have been through it understand asking "why'" is a slippery slope into a mire of self–pity. I have fallen down the slope a time or two and sometimes it stems from a choice taken from me. A choice, which slipped away when I was just twenty–nine years of age. It is a milestone in life, an innate gift many take for granted, and something we grow up expecting to have. What is the choice you ask' The ability to start a family, and capability of God's greatest miracle, life.Even though it is best not to ask "why" there are still times I think to myself why me' Most often those moments happen at random social media posts, or when I'm caught in a conversation where everyone ...

  • Tragedy and Triumph: Overcoming Cancer and Infertility
    • Abstract: My name is Bryan Ettinger. I am a two time cancer survivor and active participant in the cancer community. I was 23 years old in 2009 when I was diagnosed with cancer for the first time. I felt something was not right with my left testicle, and was told by my primary doctor that I would need to see a urologist.I went to see the urologist on a Friday, thinking that he would confirm that I had nothing to worry about. Unfortunately, the ultrasound showed that my testicle was 90% tumor and would need to be removed. I went from thinking I would be fine, to being informed I had cancer and that I would be in surgery in three days.I went through with the surgery and did my subsequent follow up at a cancer treatment and ...

  • What We Didn't Know
    • Abstract: In 1994, I was just a little kid growing up in Northern New Jersey. I was lucky; I had just graduated to sharing the upstairs bedroom with my older sister—a huge room even to this day—but monstrous to small child. One of my favorite things to do was to play with my dad; I would run across the huge expanse of pink carpet, launch, and land on him giggling. My bright blonde hair in pigtails would fly in the air as I ran and jumped.I was diagnosed with stage III Wilm's tumor, a type of pediatric kidney cancer, at the age of 4 and a half years old. It came in the shape of a large softball–sized tumor that caused my right kidney to rupture while I was playing with my dad in my bedroom. At the time of my diagnosis, my ... Read More

  • Mitigating Surprises: How Conversations with Caregivers Could Empower
           Young Cancer Patients to Determine their own Fertile Futures
    • Abstract: I shouldn't have been surprised when my OB GYN called in the summer of 2013 to let me know that I was "hormonally menopausal." Sitting in a cubicle, facing a desk littered with the day's tasks, my ears filled with blank noise and my eyes wavered. I raced to the bathroom downstairs, locked myself inside, and cried quietly with the phone to my ear, listening but not hearing anything after those two words.As a healthy, active, twenty–six–year–old woman, I found the words hormonally menopausal to be large, intrusive, and most certainly unwelcome. As a two–time cancer survivor, I found the words to be no different—though they carried plenty of painful half–forgotten baggage to validate their arrival.I was aware that my ... Read More

  • I Saw it Coming: My Testicular Cancer Infertility Story
    • Abstract: It was a dull ache, but not particularly painful. That area of my body had been a little firmer than usual in the prior weeks, but I only knew something was wrong when a hard ridge popped out. It didn't go away. A few days later, Thanksgiving 2013, I was certain there was a problem. My ball was more sensitive than it should have been, and there was this persistent hard ridge. After the ridge appeared, it took a few days to check with my primary care doc, then get referred for blood work and an ultrasound, and finally get to a urologist, who told me that one ball was atrophied/damaged, and the other had cancer. Not exactly what you want to have a urologist tell you, but it wasn't a surprise by then. We scheduled ... Read More

  • Devastation and Hope—Stories of Fertility in Oncology
    • Abstract: Having children is a deeply held desire for many people, and the stories collected in this symposium demonstrate just how devastating a threat to fertility can be. In the setting of cancer, this drive to create a family often runs into a brick wall of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Depending on the type of cancer and subsequent therapies, fertility is often diminished or eliminated in exchange for survivorship. As recently reviewed by Johnson and colleagues, men who survive childhood cancer have a 50% decrease in fertility compared to siblings, and rates of fertility in female survivors range from 16% to 41%.(Johnson et al., 2017) Beyond the ability to become pregnant, some female cancer survivors also face ...

  • Fertility Lost–Fertility Found: Narratives from the Leading Edge of
           Oncofertility
    • Abstract: I coined the term 'oncofertility' in 2006 to describe an area of basic research that spanned the traditional medical disciplines of oncology and fertility (Jeruss & Woodruff, 2009). We required a word because neither oncologists nor reproductive scientists were addressing the urgent unmet need that patients had for fertility management at the time of cancer diagnosis and treatment. Each specialist saw reproductive health as something the other should manage. This pointing across the aisle was not malicious but it did result in some of the anguish described in the narratives. Reading through the narratives of young cancer survivors reminds me how important the decision to provide a name for this thing—sterility ... Read More

  • NIB Commentary on Oncofertility Stories
    • Abstract: The stories on Cancer and Fertility portray accounts of struggle and hardship. Like any cancer patient, they endured pain, faced fear, and confronted the prospect of their own mortality. These themes should be familiar to us. We regularly encounter stories about the suffering of cancer survivors or families of those who died from cancer. Major League Baseball and the National Football League promote breast cancer awareness every October. Television broadcasts of games often include stories from survivors or those left behind.However, the stories in this issue tell a different tale. For them, the misery of cancer was amplified by that of infertility. The suffering in one part of their life bled over into and caused ... Read More

  • Ethical Challenges for Patient Access to Physical Therapy: Views of Staff
           Members from Three Publicly–Funded Outpatient Physical Therapy
           Departments
    • Abstract: Demographic change is an important driver of increasing demand for health care services in Canada (Murray, Gilbert, & Wong, 2002) and other high–income nations (De La Maisonneuve & Martins, 2013; Pammolli, Riccaboni, & Magazzini, 2012). Increased demand for physical therapy (PT) services is linked not only to a growing and aging population but also to changing rehabilitation needs within the Canadian health care system (Landry, Jaglal, Wodchis, Raman, & Cott, 2008). For example, thanks to advances in the management of acute conditions, more people survive events such as strokes or serious car accidents. Thereafter, however, these individuals often live with chronic disability and require rehabilitation to improve ... Read More

  • "We Didn't Consent to This"
    • Abstract: As the assigned inpatient palliative care attending for the month, I was walking into the Palliative Care Unit (PCU) one morning when I was hastily approached by one of our nurses, who said, "You have to go see the new transfer now. The family wants to revoke DNR … and she's dying …" Acknowledging that I would go right away, I found myself fumbling to get a stethoscope out of my bag while trying to recall the verbal sign–out report I had received from my colleague who had transferred the patient the previous night. This was a Middle Eastern lady in her 50s, who had flown in from her home country four to five days prior for a second opinion regarding her recent diagnosis of widely metastatic breast cancer. I had ... Read More

  • Focusing on the Present: Cancer, Pregnancy and the Fertility Conversation
    • Abstract: I was just six weeks pregnant with my first child when I was told I had cancer. Hodgkin's lymphoma. I was stage 2 and I needed chemotherapy, while pregnant. I was not a candidate for fertility preservation methods being currently pregnant. Although many studies found the chemotherapy regime to be "relatively" safe during pregnancy, there were higher incidences of complications, including preterm labor and birth. What if I lost this pregnancy' What if there complications and my child died' As someone who was always looking towards the future, I was not only concerned with how this would affect my current pregnancy outcome, but what of my future fertility' When I brought it up I was told the risk was small and the ...

  • The Death of Biological Motherhood
    • Abstract: I sat, in the lotus position, on his exam table arms crossed. Draped in a pale green hospital gown, barely covered, head hung low as if all muscles suffered the fate of atrophy. Tears poured from my cheeks, clutching only worn damp tissues. The man who would save my life sat adjacent. With grace and well–seasoned technique he said, "There's one more thing we need to talk about … Do you want to have children'"I silently wept oceans and he said, "Your tears tell me your answer."That day was Friday May 13th, 2011. I was 33 and single. Beside me were my mother and my dear friend J. It was on that day I learned I would need to have surgery performed by my Gynecologist Oncologist. Several weeks prior my GI doctor had ... Read More

  • I Always Wanted to be a Father
    • Abstract: I knew what was coming for me even before I went to the doctor. I could see everything laid out: the surgeries, the chemo, and the hundreds of people looking at and discussing my … reproductive organs. Before we get to that I need to give you a little back story on who I am and what I've done with my life.My name is John and I am a testicular cancer survivor.When I was a child my favorite part of going to church was when it was over. I would bolt out of there as fast as I could and run to the nursery. I would make my way to the little half door they had and ask if I could come in and play with the little kids. When I was a teenager I would spend all summer at YMCA Camp Storer, first as a volunteer cleaning the ... Read More

  • Words We Never Knew
    • Abstract: "I'm not worried about you … you are Superman!"An exclamation I never thought I would hear directed to my kind, patient, sensitive husband of less than three months, and from an embryologist no less. But, we never thought we would be facing cancer. We also did not know the word "embryologist" even existed before we were married. After less than a single season of being married, we already understood the awkwardly uttered, lilting comments like this one, and the meaning of so many other words and acronyms we never imagined would be defined. Preimplantation genetic diagnosis … reproductive endocrinologist… intracytoplasmic sperm injection … AC/T … follicle … BRCA …Everyone was worried about me, but not one person had ... Read More
