Reasons To test

"Knowledge is power"

In this video, Rick Cornfeld tells his story about how genetic testing helped him find out that he is a carrier for BRCA. As an Ashkenazi Jew and a parent who had a gynecologic cancer, he had a high genetic risk. He strongly recommends for everyone to get genetic testing because you can only take action when you know what you are dealing with. 

"Choose life every single day"

In this video, Sarah Lehrfield from the Jewish Outreach Initiative (JOI) talks about the Jewish values of taking care of your health by being extra diligent in protecting yourselves and protecting your lives. She urges all of us to be proactive by receiving genetic testing.
