What Are the Next Steps in Your Journey?
Thank you for taking care of yourself and getting valuable information for you and your family. We believe that taking preventative steps for your health are important and we want to support you in receiving the necessary information.
We know that speaking to a counselor and possibly getting information that can change your medical path is a big step. If, based on your doctor’s recommendation or your family history, you have made the important decision to speak to a genetic counselor, he or she may recommend you have genetic testing. If that’s the case, NothingPink is available to assist you with the support you need.
Having genetic testing performed will give you valuable information about a genetic mutation which can mean you have an increased risk of hereditary cancer. This information is vital to your medical decisions and those in your family members. The BRCA mutation (if positive) means you have an increase risk of breast cancer by 87% and ovarian cancer by 65%. As the founder for NothingPink, a BRCA2 positive woman, and a breast cancer survivor, I understand the value of genetic testing.
