I was diagnosed 3 months ago with stage 3 OVCA. A month later I was tested and confirmed BRCA1 positive.
My mom is a breast cancer survivor (10 years NED). We immediately got my mom and my daughter tested for BRCA1 / BRCA2. I was scared and guilt-ridden for a month, which was making my chemo experience not all it was designed to be.
My 18-year-old daughter's test came back today: NEGATIVE!!! I am SO relieved. She is my only child. This thing stops with me.
Still keeping my fingers crossed for my mom's test results.
