Cancer Risk Reduction. That’s what we’re trying to do here, right? So I deemed it only appropriate to list the link for the lovely ladies at Texas Health in Dallas who can give you all the information you need to look into this. I should also tell you ahead of time that not everyone’s insurance will cover the test. And whether they do or they don’t, testing cost for each individual may vary. Your best bet would be to contact Judy and let her know I sent you her way (Amy Jones). She and Becky are thrilled to hear there are so many women (and men) with such a strong interest in taking action!
Speaking of ACTION, I’ve also listed a website started by the Christina Applegate Foundation. Christina Applegate is BRCA1 positive and also had a double mastectomy with reconstruction a few years ago. She has started her own foundation called Right Action For Women and is determined to assist in raising/providing funds for young women to get proper screenings and testing that are at a higher risk for breast/ovarian cancer.
I’ve also listed the link for Bright Pink, which is a non-profit organization that is purely dedicated to raising awareness surrounding breast and ovarian health in young women! G Rancic and Bright Pink have a very special place in my heart!
