Since 2012, the Basser Center for BRCA has been working towards treating, preventing, and researching BRCA related Cancers. Now, the Center has launched #invisiblegenes to bring awareness to inherited cancer and increase early detection.
Dana Zucker, Executive Director of the Gray Foundation and Mindy Gray Co-founder for Basser Center for BRCA and Gray Foundation join Cheddar to explain the campaign and why understanding BRCA is so important. Everyone has BRCA genes, but the issue is when those genes are mutated.
BRCA mutations can lead to breast cancer, ovarian cancer, and others. The Basser Center for BRCA hopes that through their work, the treatments around breast cancer and other hereditary gene cancers will improve and become less cumbersome and intrusive.
