Jessica could relate. She was determined to take all the precautions readily available and also was also prepared to have a full hysterectomy and also mastectomy if required. Thankfully, that selection never had to be made. Thanks to the POCP program, Jessica was relieved to discover that her results returned negative. It was nearly as if an angel had stepped in to give her the satisfaction she needed. Possibly it was her mom.

Spread the word! Women that reside in Ontario can take part in POCP genetic testing on the Prevent Ovarian Cancer Program website where they can register for an account and also demand an online eligibility questionnaire. If you qualify, blood tests can be taken at a LifeLabs center as well as samples are sent out to Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in Toronto.
