“That book!” exclaimed a woman sitting behind me. “I am here because of that book! I can’t tell you how great it is. It has changed my life.”
She is speaking of Positive Results and she is at a session at the 5th Annual Joining FORCEs conference on Making Decisions to hear my co-author, Dr. Ora Gordon, speak.
This sentiment has been replayed in dozens of conversations over our three days at the Joining FORCEs conference in Orlando. Women have told us how reading Positive Results has been transformative and empowering for them. They have told us how it has helped them feel less alone; how it has helped them understand their risk and their decisions; how they have sent copies of it to friends, family and even their doctors so that these people in their lives will better understand their high risk for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer and their emotional journey.
We have been touched by each of these conversations. Helping women at risk of breast and ovarian cancer (and ALL women are), especially those in the high-risk community, was our goal and we are truly honored to know that our hard work has been helpful.
Thank you for reading and thank you for sharing your experiences.
