Good Morning Tumblrs..Welcome New Followers:
Breast cancer awareness month.
My Mom, my Maternal Grandmother, My Maternal Aunt all had breast cancer.
I have been hyper vigilant about testing and doing my monthly exams.
Last month my doctor recommended that I be BRCA tested, as Angelina Jolie Pitt famously was.
The BRCA test is a genetic marker to see if you carry the gene for developing breast cancer.
I was certain that my testing would come back positive.
But I was wrong, my test came back negative.
For which I am incredibly grateful.
And I feel as though I won the genetic lottery for this round.
If breast cancer runs in your family, have the test done.
I still plan to remain vigilant for my yearly screenings and monthly exams.
