Living with BRCA is a full day conference for the general public that provides up-to-date clinical and research information focused on hereditary breast and ovarian cancer.

This unique event, open to the general public, brings together experts in medicine, surgery, genetics, biology, sex therapy, psychology, and wellness, all of whom are united in one goal: bettering the lives of those living with BRCA and their families and friends.

Please assist us by inviting your patients, friends, and colleagues who may be interested in learning more about the impact of living with BRCA1/2.

An opportunity to learn about:
  • Cancer risks, surveillance, and risk reduction options for BRCA1 and BRCA2 carriers;
  • Other cancer risks related to BRCA;
  • Fertility preservation;
  • Sexuality and intimacy for couples after cancer and/or risk-reducing surgery;
  • Psychological coping tips for cancer previvors and survivors.

Gene carriers and their families will also have the unique opportunity to address their questions to BRCA experts working in both clinical and research fields.
