BRCA2 positive

I found out a few months ago that my mom who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at 75 is positive so her sisters and kids were all tested (except my brother who doesn’t want to be tested).
One sister, me, my oldest daughter and a cousin are positive.

Thanks to Angelina Jolie (I’m not really a fan of her work but of her forthrightness about BRCA) I already knew what I’d do and being 55 made it easier. Not so much for younger women like my daughter.
Had my hysterectomy on 6/2, healing well.
Bilateral mastectomy with DIEP flap reconstruction on 9/11.
(Dark humor about my own twin towers falling crossing my mind)
Pretty much terrified of it.
This whole BRCA thing hit me like a truck.
