40 years old and have 3 beautiful boys (12,9, and 11 months!!!) and a wonderful, supportive husband of 17 years! Lost my Dad to Pancreatic cancer last year. ( Still hurts!) Both his sisters and 2 of their daughters diagnosed with breast Cancer (lost 1 to the cancer), and 1 of their sons lost to Prostrate cancer.
So far, no...hard to have the knowledge, but glad I can be proactive.

Please contact me if I can be of any help to you!
