Four years ago, I was offered genetic testing based on my family’s cancer history, but I was content not knowing my status at that time. Looking back now, I can’t believe I didn’t just go ahead and get it done. It wasn’t until last year when my sister @erinplum was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 31 that I realized I really needed to take my potential cancer risk more seriously. My life changed the minute I found out I was BRCA1+. My odds of getting breast and ovarian cancer rocketed sky high, and I felt like I couldn’t catch my breath as I began what turned into months of research, meetings with surgeons, and major emotional turmoil.
