    Inheriting a mutation in the BRCA1 or the BRCA2 gene does not guarantee you will get breast or ovarian cancer. Please read the publication at
    Please watch the video at

    Evidence based on spontaneous chromosome abnormalities and epidemiologic data indicates strong effects from exogenous mutagens and does
    not support the inevitability of cancer in all BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers. This removes a theoretical argument that has limited efforts to develop prevention strategies to delay or prevent cancers in BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutation carriers.

    I am inspired by your story & your courage to make such challenging decisions at your age. For personal reasons and for my desire to help our future generations going through this, and facing such burdensome questions and options, I have joined on to a research study at University of Pennsylvania. Our goal is recruit BRCA+ and true negatives to participate in an simple survey that gathers information about family planning. Additionally we collect blood samples and perform an ultrasound to determine the impact this mutation has on its carriers’ attitudes and fertility. Our goal is to help future generations with issues surrounding family planning and alleviate one stressor along the way. If you, or anyone reading this is interested in participating please feel free to email me with any questions at
    My best,
