I recently had the opportunity to share in a local news story to help raise awareness for BRCA1/2 mutations and those of us who are living our lives as Previvors; and for FORCE which has given us a voice.
Amy Shainman, our local FORCE coordinator was featured in the story, done by her husband Jon who is a news reporter and weekend anchor for WPTV, our local NBC affiliate.
There is so much information out on genetic testing for Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancers (HBOC) it is so important to raise awareness that there are choices, preventative measures and education for those who have learned they have a BRCA mutation or those who want to learn more about it and what they can do.
I can only hope that sharing this story may help someone else out there.
