We welcome you to our website and invite you to learn more about the benefits of genetic testing to reduce your risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer. Our goal is to educate women about a gene mutation which substantially increases their risk of breast or ovarian cancer. However, we want to do more than just educate you about this gene mutation. We want to encourage you to seek genetic counseling so you can decide whether genetic testing is right for you. Our mission is to support education and genetic screening of women around the world so we can break the cycle of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer!

Our organization was created because one of the founding members was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 47. After her diagnosis, she learned that she carried the BRCA 1 mutation which gave her a 33-50% risk of developing breast cancer by age 50. She only wishes that someone had educated her about genetic testing so she could have taken preventive measures to reduce her risk. The information about her genetic makeup became even more compelling because she has two sisters. Armed with this information, her sisters could find out if they were carriers also and take proactive measures, if necessary. The story started with one sister and her husband but REACH is the combined effort and love of three sisters who want to spread the word so they might save lives.
