ANN'S STORY
Supporter

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 event.

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

Ann,
