The thought of cancer is scary. The thought of breast or ovarian cancer, especially when related to someone who has suffered from either, is even scarier. However, there is a test that could warn you about your chances of getting cancer, helping you to make better informed health care decisions.
BRACAnalysis® is a test for individuals thought to be at high risk for hereditary breast or ovarian cancer because of a personal and/or family history of breast or ovarian cancer. BRACAnalysis® detects mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, the gene mutations that are responsible for the vast majority of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer.
It is one little test that could give you a chance to keep making memories with the people you love. Do you have a personal or family history of breast or ovarian cancer? Just Ask! Ask that question of yourself, your family, friends and doctor. Take the test and spread the word to others who may benefit from it.
JustAsk! is trying to get the word out about this very important test. Right now for every 1 like they receive at their Facebook fan page, $1.00 will be donated for testing/screening for women who otherwise would not be able to afford it (up to $25,000).
