I read your story in the Jewish Journal this week, and I
applaud the work you are doing to educate young women in regard
to BRCA 1 and BRCA 2.
I am the mother of two young women, ages 44 and 49, who carry
the BRCA 1 gene. One daugther is a stage 4+ metastatic breast
cancer patient while my other daughter has not yet had a cancer
I would like to support your efforts in any way that I can.
While I do not have the gene, I am well informed about the
information on your website. The only thing I could add to
your information is to point out that it is equally possible
for the gene to be carried by the father. I have also been
told the gene does not skip a generation.
Good Luck and Good Health
