Well, the Bright Pink newsletter, that is. Check out a piece I wrote about my changing relationship to Ovarian and Breast Cancer Awareness months, and the importance of thinking about the folks who have neither of those things to be aware of -- ie: the men in our families -- and how their genetic heritage affects our own. If I have one soapbox as a BRCA blogger, it's that I want to remind young women (and men) to consider both their mother and father's family histories of breast and ovarian cancer. I'm incredibly lucky that, despite having no obvious warning signs (no doctor asks about your father's cousin's health when assessing medical history), I know my risk and had the choice to defy it.
If you're having trouble reading that (click on it once, then click on it again to enlarge it), check out the full newsletter.
To the new women visiting this blog for the first time, welcome! And if you have any questions about anything, please feel free to email me.
