The International Conference on Preservation of Fertility for Cancer Patients (PFCP 2013) will be held in Hong Kong from 1-3 February 2013. On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to join this conference which is hosted by The Hong Kong Society for Reproductive Medicine and endorsed by the International Society for Fertility Preservation.

Cancer is increasing in prevalence and concurrently its treatment is also of increasing success. The age of onset, especially in the commonest cancer in women, namely breast cancer, is getting younger and younger. Thus, the request for preserving a woman's fertility is increasingly common and also more important. At the same time, just as treatment success is a reality, medical treatment and technologies for effectively providing fertility preservation advances. It is now possible to store sperm, eggs, embryos, even part of or whole organs and then use them to produce children for those who recover from their diseases. But this is not restricted to women of reproductive years, patients of both sexes in all age groups can benefit.

The PFCP 2013 will have a collection of the best scientists and clinicians in this field, and will present a cutting edge view of the current knowledge and practice. For the interest of all doctors, especially those in Asia, this is the first opportunity to meet the experts and learn at first hand the basic sciences and clinical modalities of fertility preservation. The conference will be an excellent occasion to get updated on novel discoveries and techniques.

Besides participating in the conference, having a glimpse of the city is always a tempting idea. Hong Kong is a vibrant cosmopolitan city with unique opportunities for sightseeing, shopping, dining and entertainment. We are sure that you will have a wonderful time here!

We look forward to welcoming you to Hong Kong in 2013.
