    Lost loved one

    Loss

    Our family has the BRAC2 gene. I lost my sister in January 2011, she fought a tough battle. She went through treatment for breast then four years later ovarian cancer, then she had to endure dialysis three days a week. It was so hard to watch her health deteriate and all the wounds she had to change dressing daily. I am worried about my family going through the same experience with me.
