Race To Save Young Couple's Fertility Amid Cancer Battle

A young couple facing a cancer battle and a race against time to plan their family turned to Kyle and Jackie O for help - but they didn't want a hand-out.

Josh, 19, called The Kyle & Jackie O Show asking if Kyle would loan him $2000 - his 18-year-old girlfriend has been diagnosed with cancer, and they have just days to find the money to freeze her eggs before commencing radiation that could have a devastating impact on her fertility.

Josh was adamant he would pay back the money.

"I don't want you guys to feel sorry for me," he said.

Dr Knight from Demeter Fertility heard Josh and stepped up, offering the couple free IVF services worth $17,000.

"Personally, I have a tear in my eye," Dr Knight said.

"Sometimes you just get dealt these things, and what else can we do but help out?"
