Found out about BRCA2+ status less than 6 months ago. Tested because my mother had ovarian cancer and I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at age 40. Had a prophylactic mastectomy with expanders, implants, and nipple reconstruction.

My participation with FORCE
Reading the boards has helped me in my decision-making process. It also has helped me feel that I am not alone and that there are women out there who are willing to support me and walk me through the process.
I am an 8 year survivor of ovarian cancer. I was not willing to wait to see when and at what stage breast cancer was going to appear.
