For September & October I’ll be giving away two separate BRCA Genetic Screenings (for you or your friends/family)!!!
As we near September and October (Ovarian and Breast Cancer Awareness Months) I wanted to do something BIG to raise awareness …. something that makes sense coming from me. As a BRCA positive previvor, (and having had no cancer) these cancers affected me in ways that may differ from others’ experiences… THAT SAID — all of September and all of October, I’ll be holding a contest on my Ms. Cheevious blog offering TWO FREE BRCA GENETIC SCREENINGS from Invitae (a genetic screening company) to one lucky person each month (of course, their doctor must order the screening, and everything else has to align – the need for the screening, the medical basis for it — and Invitae will work with the winners to find a doctor in their area). Again, one winner in Sept and one in Oct!!! Stay tuned for the actual contest details, so you can share it with your family and friends. I will know soon if we can allow transfers… so if you win, you can gift it to someone in need.
You can also subscribe to the Ms. Cheevious blog to be one of the first to get in on the action. It will be a Raffle Copter, so people can to enter daily to increase their odds of winning.

Such an important topic and I will be helping to spread the word. Thanks Lisa for spotlighting women’s’ health issues!
It is my pleasure and mission to spread the word. Thank you for sharing and talking about this Tara! 🙂
This is a great offer. Deciding to be tested is such an important decision. If the breast cancer in ones family occurs late in life, I am wondering if the testing is a good idea when one is still under 50.
Hi Onisha. Thanks for the comment. If someone is under 50 (as I was – at 44) it is still a good idea, because the BRCA2 mutation tends to afflict people latter 40’s or 50’s… still earlier than other forms of non-inherited Breast or Ovarian Cancer.
It also depends on when the family member got breast or ovarian cancer Onisha. It all contributes to the risk factor for the family.
I’ll spread the word. My mother had a mastectomy. Breast cancer is not a game, in fact, cancer is not a game.
Exactly Bob. Thank you so much!
This is so great of you to be promoting this Lisa! What an important message.
Thanks so much Elli! I so appreciate you!
