What led you to do the testing? "My age at the time of diagnosis and the fact that I have a daughter. Knowledge is power."
What were your results? "BRCA1 & 2 negative, VUS positive."
Was payment an issue? "No, it was 100% covered."
Have you discussed these decisions with your family? "Yes, I shared the results with my family."
What suggestions would you have for others? "Again, knowledge is power. It was a no-brainer for me."
-- Wendiwithani, tested positive for a variable of unknown significance (VUS)
