Just Ask!: Tuesday #gno Twitter Party on Hereditary Cancer Awareness
Cancer is such a scary word. Throw the word “hereditary” in front of it and it stands for a cancer that develops because of gene mutations in a family. All cancers are caused by changes to materials in our bodies called “genes.” When genes become damaged, they develop changes called “mutations.” Individuals who inherit these gene changes have a higher likelihood of developing cancer within their lifetime.
It is incredibly important to stay on top of cancer screenings and self examinations regularly in order to maintain your health. In an effort to help others beat hereditary cancers, a donor will donate $1.00 for every “like” to their Facebook page up to $25,000. This money will go towards providing screening and mammograms to women who could not otherwise afford them.
