My journey

Earlier this year I discovered a day beforehand that my mother was undergoing a preventive hysterectomy, she had a double radical mastectomy at 28. I am positive, and just turned 28. Many thoughts, preventive measures? Issues with hormone treatments to undergo super ovulation and pgd/pgs?

The hardest part of my journey

I recently left my position at a company focusing on the reduction of genetic disease through pre implantation genetic screening and or diagnosis. Having in depth knowledge on the business side is very different than facing it personally. Hardest part is yet to come.

If I could do it over again

I don't know why this is here.
