C+C x Chic Mission

Chick Mission (CM) picks up where our system failed and overwhelming supports women! and THAT is a mission we stand by!

Since C+C’s foundation- CM has been a partner of ours because our missions align.
Their focus on supporting women’s right to fertility preservation when diagnosed with cancer is truly changing the trajectory of women’s lives!

This is their story:

Amanda was diagnosed with cancer 3 times before her 40th b-day. Her insurance would not cover egg freezing claiming she was not *YET* infertile by their standards. The lack of coverage was even more shocking given Amanda had fertility benefits on her plan. But the insurance company did not consider cancer a present day problem. They would rather throw money at the problem when it was impossible to fix?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This was outrageous and another blowup on top of ANOTHER cancer diagnosis. Amanda went out of pocket for all the other women who could not afford to do so. A woman can battle and beat cancer and have no chance to have a baby on the other side? The board decided to create need based grants called Hope Scholarships to help female cancer patients avoid an insurance mess.

“Tracy Weiss is a cancer survivor who was diagnosed with cervical cancer at age 30. She knew what the cervix did, no matter what anyone tells you. Tracy was pretty annoyed when her insurance company denied her claim to preserve her fertility under it being ‘elective’ - as if having a tumor was something anyone would choose. She remained pretty pissed until The Chick Mission was founded to help women standing in her shoes - now she gets her revenge every time another woman receives assistance from the organization.”
