A friend and fellow BRCA Sister, Helen Smith, developed this Power Point presentation.
It is a very easy-to-understand format about genetic mutation and what carrying the BRCA mutation means to her and her journey.
We know that the two genetic mutations, BRCA 1 and 2, will increase risk of developing Breast and/or Ovarian cancers in their lifetime. There are many options available in current medicine beginning with increased surveillance to major surgeries.
With this presentation, perhaps more women and men will be able to make a better informed decision. As always. FORCE, Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered, is there as a font of information and support for those carrying the genetic mutation as well as those with a strong family history of these cancers. Go to www.facingourrisk.org for webinars, local outreach groups and much more!
Love and hugs,
