three generation of women

If you are a woman with a family health history of breast or ovarian cancer, you may be more likely to get these cancers yourself. Collecting your family health history and sharing this information with your doctor can help you find out if you’re at higher risk. If so, you can take steps to lower your risk.

The Bring Your Brave campaign provides information about breast cancer to women younger than age 45 by sharing real stories about young women whose lives have been affected by breast cancer.

The Know:BRCA tool helps you assess your risk of having a BRCA gene mutation.
