    Breast Cancer Awareness - BRCA stands for BReast CAncer susceptibility gene. There are two BRCA genes :BRCA1 and BRCA2. These mutations (changes) in BRCA genes are responsible for increased risk in breast, ovarian, and other cancers. If cancer runs in your family, you may want to consider being tested. I'm glad I did.

    If suspected, get tested. Help save family members.
