BCS_Blog_DTOP_BelowTitle_336x280

Tamara Donovan is a breast cancer previvor. What’s that you ask? Tamara tested positive for “the breast cancer gene” also known as the mutated BRCA gene. BRCA1 and BRCA2 are genes that suppress tumors. When mutated, the protein they produce does not suppresses tumors, and as a result, cells may form genetic alterations, leading to cancer.

Tamara opens up about her decision to be proactive, and go ahead with a mastectomy and breast reconstruction.
