Uterus Transplant Raises Hope as Well as Ethical Concerns

The Cleveland Clinic made history last week with a first attempt at a uterus transplant. Two other medical institutions in the US are also piloting programs where this surgery may be an option for women. Healthline interviewed Sara Krish, founder of The Fly Buddha Foundation, who had her uterus removed during cancer surgery three years ago. Krish explains that this surgery is nothing short of a miracle. "Most of us want to have that feeling - that feeling to carry another human being," Krish told Healthline. "To know I could possibly get that back feels like an absolute blessing."  Read more about this pilot program for uterus transplants.

Santa Monica women explore egg freezing

In early October at The Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica, a group of women attended an #EggSocial hosted by the Beverly Hills-based Southern California Reproductive Center. The event was an informal gathering during which the women were educated about fertility preservation and, most specifically, egg freezing.

But at the end of a night of presentations, dinner and cocktails, there were mixed reactions among the attendees to sticking around to talk to the Daily Press about a subject as sensitive as fertility and pregnancy.

But one woman willing to talk was cervical cancer survivor Sara Krish, who had been a speaker that night. Krish, owner of The Fly Buddha in Redondo Beach, thought it was important to share her experience so that others might give themselves the possibility she gave herself.  Read more on the Santa Monica Daily Press

The Beach Reporter - "Spin Instructor's Cancer Story"

Thirty-year-old spin instructor Sara Krish's women's intuition was telling her something was seriously wrong. She always took pride in being healthy.  She ate organic foods and was an avid fitness coach who aspired to open her own hip-hop yoga and spin studio in Hermosa Beach.  Two years ago, when she heard her doctor utter "the ugly 'C-word'" she said it was a real kick in the pants.  It was hard to accept.  She never imagined that she would have to face a battle with cancer as a young adult.  Read more about a Spin instructor's cancer journey on The Beach Reporter.
