If so, you should know about BRACAnalysis®... a genetic test that can let you know your risk for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer (HBOC) by identifying a BRCA gene mutation. Knowing your risk can help you be ready against hereditary cancer—so you and your doctor can take steps to manage your risk.
The Just Ask! Campaign is promoting awareness of this important testing and today, I'm asking you, my blog readers, to simply visit their Facebook page and "Like" it. For every 1 like they receive $1 will be donated for testing/screening for women who would otherwise not be able to afford it. (up to $25,000).
Now you know I wouldn't ask you to do something without making it a bit more fun, so you can thank the Just Ask! people along with Today'sMama.com for tossing in one of the coolest prizes I've ever been able to give away. It's this:
How cool is that?

At the end of the day, we want to promote this testing to women who might need it, and might not be able to afford it, and just to bring awareness to all of those women with the hereditary markers for these horrible cancers. Advance knowledge can change the way treatment is approached and can save lives.
Good luck and check back on March 5th to see if you're the lucky winner.
