Veterans Advantage Will Feature Legacy in its Flagship Military Discounts Marketplace With Exclusive Discounts
BOSTON, Mass. August 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Legacy (YC S’19), the premier fatherhood and male fertility company announced a new partnership with Veterans Advantage, PBC, to offer its at-home sperm testing and storage platform at a discount to all military service members (past and present) and their families.
The partnership will feature an exclusive discount program in which Active Duty service members and retirees, veterans and family members enrolled in the Veterans Advantage VetRewards program receive a 25% discount on Legacy’s core product offering.
“We’re excited to partner with Veterans Advantage to create this new benefit,” said Khaled Kteily, CEO of Legacy. “The conventional view around fertility as a female issue is outdated and wrong. We believe Legacy’s product offering will advance the conversation and enable a whole-family approach to fertility issues, especially as couples are starting families later in life.”
“Giving this benefit is a ‘A Real Thank You,’ and helps many of our nation’s veterans to protect their opportunity for future parenthood,” Kteily added.
“Our partnership with Legacy supports our mission to enhance the lifestyle of those who served,” said Scott Higgins, co-founder and co-CEO. “We’re thrilled innovative companies like Legacy want to honor those who served, and we’re proud to make this benefit available for our members.”
Legacy’s commitment to military service members is inspired, in large part, by Secretary Ash Carter’s “Force of the Future Program” which recognized the importance of enhanced fertility benefits, to include sperm and egg freezing. The Legacy team, which includes John Crowley as Head of Military Affairs, is committed to ensuring that DNA cryopreservation is made available to every deploying service member.
