Why should you register? 1 in 40 Ashkenazi Jews carries a BRCA gene mutation, increasing their risk for breast, ovarian, male breast, prostate, pancreatic, and melanoma cancers. Men and women can both be carriers of BRCA gene mutations, with each having a 50% chance of passing it on to the next generation. Join us to know the facts, learn the risks, and take action.
