KSN News Feature: Caroline Breit

Dr. Breit's daughter, Caroline, is a 3rd-year medical student at KU and is working towards being a breast surgeon. Because of Dr. Breit's family's experiences, the Center for Women's Health was an early adapter of genetic hereditary cancer testing and does more tests than any other OB/GYN clinic in the state of Kansas.

"I'm honored to be able to talk about my own journey as one of the many women (and men!) who carry a BRCA mutation. I am lucky in that I found out early, and was able to have preventative surgery to reduce my risks of breast cancer. This mutation isn't something that I talk about often - because after all, it is just a mutation - but it is also one of the reasons why this research is so near and dear to my heart.

Thanks again to KSN news for letting me share my story!"
