1 in 40 Ashkenazi Jews – men and women – carries a BRCA gene mutation, more than 10x the rate of the general population. This makes Jewish families significantly more susceptible to hereditary cancer, which could include breast, ovarian, pancreatic, prostate, melanoma or male breast cancer. Mutations in other cancer susceptibility genes can also increase a person’s risk for these and other types of cancer.

If you have not been tested for BRCA and other cancer susceptibility genes and are interested in registering for an at-home test kit through JScreen, go to www.jscreen.org.

If you or someone in your family has tested BRCA+ or carries another gene mutation (for example, CHEK2, ATM, PALB2, or a Lynch syndrome mutation), Sharsheret can help.
