When Cara was 3 years old, her mother passed away from breast cancer. Because of her family history, Cara’s father encouraged her to get genetic counseling and to be tested for a BRCA gene mutation. At 22, she tested positive for a BRCA gene mutation and chose the path of surveillance. After her first breast MRI, Cara was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since her treatment ended in 2011, Cara has been cancer-free. Learn more about Cara by watching her videos.
