Stage 2A Patient
I am positive for mutation in both genes. Even so, it s not recommended for my 3 daughters to start regular screenings until they are 32 (10 years earlier then my diagnosis age) and BRCA testing is voluntary dependent on insurance. I am VERY, VERY lucky that we ave incredible primary insurance, Executive Insurance that pays for anything primary doesn't pay for and allows me "perks" like private room, extra days in the hospital, private nursing, etc. But on top of that one of my daughters is no longer covered under our insurance, so we are offering to pay cash for her testing f she wants it. Again, I am lucky, but I wish the testing was free or cost effective. Myriad is holding our genes hostage because of their patent.
