Writer's Statement

"Family tree/beautiful/but harmful?" The tree shown represents a family tree of a family with hereditary breast cancer; the branches bare and solemn. This tree is not standing alone. Close by is a blossoming bush with vivacious flowers representing an exceptionally healthy ancestry. BRAC hereditary screening may be the answer to help keep all the family trees in full bloom.
