Jackie: Testing for a BRCA Gene Mutation


>>Female Speaker: On
my father’s side I have multiple relatives who’ve
had breast or ovarian cancer at an early age. My physician actually
suggested that I go see a genetic counselor. She asked me about
my family history. We talked about what my
options were going to be. I decided to get tested. Part of me didn’t believe
that it was BRCA1 positive. At first it was very
scary, you know? But then, it just
became very empowering. I could do something
about this. This doesn’t have
to be my destiny.
