Hi @patsydanley ,
You and your daughter have provided another great example of using genetic testing in a manner that resulted in early detection for your daughter's breast cancer and personal planning for the future.

Was genetic testing suggested by your physician or was this your own decision?

My oncologist recommended it given our family history (my grandmother had ovarian cancer 50 years before). When my sister had cancer, I began having mammograms at 35. I was diagnosed at age 60.
