CAYA – Cancer Risk and Young Adulthood Study
CAYA, Cancer Risk and Young Adulthood, is a study for young women between the ages of 18-30 that have a 1st or 2nd degree relative that has tested positive for the BRCA1/2 mutation. The study is designed to gather information about how familial cancer risks impact the lives of young adult women and may help us to develop tools to help them manage their cancer risk. Participants can be tested or untested for the BRCA1/2 mutation. The research team at Georgetown University is interested in learning what you know, think, and feel about having a cancer risk to develop better tools to help you manage that risk.

For questions about the study, please contact Chalanda Evans at firstname.lastname@example.org.
