Get inspired with this incredibly heartfelt memoir written by Leanne Kaye. She begins her riveting story before her mother’s tragic breast cancer diagnosis and later on, death. Kaye explains the meaning of the word ‘previvor’ to be a combination of the word survivor and predisposition, a person who is a carrier of the cancerous gene who has not been diagnosed.
Encouraging people to get tested and to stop considering breast cancer a ‘good’ cancer, Kaye aspires to motivate women at risk to take preventative measures and not to ignore the serious threat that is breast cancer.
Varying by ethnic group, BRCA1/2 mutations can affect 1 in 400 in the U.S. in the general population and 1 in 40 in Ashkenazi Jewish men and women.
A single mother to three energetic boys, Leanne Kaye works as a freelance writer and creative consultant by day and as a poet/performer by night.
