CNN IReport

Since it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month (AKA Let's stick a pink ribbon on anything that'll stand still month) CNN iReport has featured an assignment regarding breast cancer genetic testing. This is a great place to read loads of previvor stories (the total when I last saw it was 26, including yours truly) Check it out!

Tested for the breast cancer gene?

    1. No I'm uninformed negative for BRCA. So I guess the best answer would be I don't know.

      But I've never claimed to be BRCA.....

    2. I didn't state that you did. Just asking a question. Sorry to bother you!

      (From the mean Twitter girl.) :(

    3. PS, delete my comment. And my others as well. I'm disgusted.

      I asked if you were BRCA+ because of your CNN post. I can't believe you flipped out! :(

  2. Michelle, you're doing a great job to raise awareness that HBOC is not just BRCA, but things like Cowden's Syndrome as well.
    I also love that you have never let it dictate your life. It's part of who you are, but there is so much more to you.
    I'm very sorry you're being harassed.

    1. Thank you :) I'm glad I'm not over exaggerating the crazy.

      I'm going to leave every single comment up. Because's my blog and I can if I want to

    2. I think it's scary when the bully tries to play the victim.
      I love you because you've never in any of this played a victim, not to CS, not to anyone.
