Tree of Life: a BRCA Conversation
BRCA is a gene which, when mutated, can cause a greater risk
of certain cancers, and it's far more common in Jewish individuals of Ashkenazi descent. We can do something about it by better understanding our family medical history. Download one of the following conversation guides to get started.
Tree of Life: a BRCA Conversation is dedicated in celebration of the life of Carolyn Raizes Davis z’l. Our family hopes you find the conversation guides to be an effective tool to engage in meaningful conversation about hereditary cancers prevalent among Jews of Ashkenazi (Eastern European) descent.
To help families begin this dialogue, we offer three separate conversation guides – Passover, Shabbat and Rosh Chodesh – to raise awareness and to establish family medical histories. Click on the images above to download a conversation guide.
