I am a stage 2c survivor; negative on both braca1 + 2 test. Am I correctly understanding that my sister remains at a 1.4% risk range? Or is her risk higher?

There are other genes, aside from BRCA1 and BRCA2, that may have been associated with your ovarian cancer. Would recommend revisiting with a genetic counselor to discuss whether additional genetic testing is warranted. If you have one of the less common genes that has been implicated in ovarian cancer, your sister’s risk could be elevated above the general population risk.
