Breast cancer survivor

Dear Anonymous from Elma, WA, I strongly recommend that you get tested for the breast cancer gene. My mother and aunt had breast cancer and eleven years ago I was diagnosed with it. I was tested for the BRACA gene and I tested positive. My two daughters were then tested and were also positive for the BRACA gene. We have had double mastectomies with reconstruction. We are so very grateful that the test is available and now we are very happy, healthy and worry free!!!! Barbara Potomac, MD
