My journey

I had breast cancer at age 26, underwent chemo and a double mastectomy. I am now 30 with fraternal twin girls (14 months) and I am interested in reading about what to do about my ovaries!

The hardest part of my journey

Knowing I now I have 2 daughters that could be BRCA1 positive.

If I could do it over again

NO
