Inclusion Criteria:

   - Female

   - English-speaking

   - Completed cancer treatment known to have gonadotoxic effects (e.g., systemic
   chemotherapy, surgery affecting reproductive organs or hormone regulation, and/or
   pelvic radiation)

   - Desire future children or uncertainty regarding family-building plans

   - Access to the Internet and use of a computer, tablet, or smartphone

Exclusion Criteria:

   - Currently undergoing cancer treatment excluding long-term adjuvant or maintenance
   therapies, such as tamoxifen

   - Significant physical or mental disability that prevents completion of study activities

Note: Survivors on adjuvant maintenance or endocrine treatment, such as tamoxifen, will not
be excluded because clinical guidelines allow treatment delay or hiatus to accommodate
fertility preservation, egg extraction for surrogacy, or pregnancy for some patients, and
because patients may be interested in alternative family-building options such as surrogacy
or adopting.
