    It is overwhelming for a parent as well as an adolescent to receive a diagnosis of cancer.  Decisions have to be made about treatment, and as well as fertility preservation.  Making decisions about when, and how to do treatment or fertility preservation are very important, and if not done in a timely manner the cancer can spread or treatment prior to fertility preservation can possibly cause infertility.  The psychologist did a great job with informing the parents as well as the adolescent that the decision is theirs and there is no right or wrong answer.  That one simple line helped to calm the father a little bit.  It’s very important to respect the decision made by the family and not to place judgement if the decision made is not something you would have made if you were in the same situation.
