Cara: Making Decisions with a Genetic Counselor

Female Speaker: My mom
passed from breast cancer when I was three. My dad was the one who had
encouraged me to get genetic testing because I have
Ashkenazi Jewish background, and there was a strong
history on my mother’s side. I remember that the genetic
counselor put everything into context for me. It’s not something
that only affects you. It also affects family,
and a genetic counselor can really help you talk to
your family about that risk. [music playing]
