Journey Of A Breast Cancer SurvivorThe Breast Cancer Site
After being diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 30, breast cancer survivor Genae Girard, was asked if she’d like to take a test to determine if she would test positive for the BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 gene. With a history of breast cancer in her family, Genae felt it was a good idea at the time.
Watch how Genae tried to get a second opinion after being diagnosed BRCA 2, but was stopped due to Miriad, the testing company’s patent of the gene test. Teaming up with a number of women in a lawsuit against Miriad, Genae fought against Miriad on patenting naturally occurring DNA. Hear Genae’s fight to the right of her gene’s and the positive victory that came out of it for not only her but for the future of all women testing for breast cancer!
