Come to the MJCCA for an informational session with Dr. Bearman about the BRCA gene and come get tested and see if you qualify for testing.BRCA1 and BRCA2 are human genes that produce tumor suppressor proteins. These proteins help repair damaged DNA and, therefore, play a role in ensuring the stability of the cellís genetic material. When either of these genes is mutated, or altered, such that its protein product either is not made or does not function correctly, DNA damage may not be repaired properly. As a result, cells are more likely to develop additional genetic alterations that can lead to cancer. Open to both men and women, and testing done on site!
