Genetic Testing Results Back!


I got a call from Dr. Whitworth's office today and my genetic test results (BRCA-1&2) came back negative! This is great news for my sisters, Jenni and the grand girls. It means I don't have a genetic mutation that pre-disposed me to breast cancer that I could be passing on to them. It also means that I shouldn't be at a higher risk for recurrence or other cancers.

Josh and Jenni told me they are relieved to hear I didn't pass on any bad genetic mutations to them, but if I did - they request it to be the kind that would give them X-men powers.
