Because Danielle has a strong family history of breast cancer, her doctor continuously pushed her to get genetic counseling. And it’s a good thing she did – Danielle’s assessment led to the discovery of breast cancer in its early stages, when it’s easier to treat. Now, Danielle is a survivor and eager to share her journey. Washington University geneticist Amy Cyr, MD, joins the conversation to emphasize the need for more awareness about genetic screenings and counseling. She also discusses how she recently helped our host, Laura, make a plan for her own genetic breast cancer risk.
