Legacy’s work with the Naval Special Warfare Community operators (including SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant Craft Crewman, and Explosive Ordnance Demolition personnel) gives military members free access to privacy-protected, at-home Legacy sperm testing with one year of complimentary cryopreservation service. The partnership begins July 1 and demonstrates Legacy’s commitment to addressing fertility challenges faced by active military, veterans, and family members.
Through this unique collaboration between a non-profit and a rapidly growing start-up, the two organizations are taking action on the important need for frequently deploying troops to preserve their fertility, as Congress has struggled to pass funding for this essential care.
The program was designed to offer troops both “peace of mind” and “greater flexibility” should they look to start families in the future. The Legacy team, which includes John Crowley as Head of Military Affairs, is working alongside non-profit partner MFBC, to ensure that DNA cryopreservation is made available to every service member.
If you’re part of NSW or interested in understanding and protecting your fertility, Legacy invites you to purchase a kit today. For those in New York, Legacy is covered by major insurance providers.
