By ,,Conny Reichardt I wanted to share my story of being a previvor. A previvor is someone who has taken preventative measures to decrease their chances of getting a cancer they may be predisposed to. I have been lucky enough to know I have a ,,,BRCA1 genetic mutation so that I can make choices that will be a win not only for me but my family and generations to come.
