BRCA Babes 2014 Calendar
The BRCA Babes Calendar is one of the most important strides ever made in raising positive awareness of the 'high risk' breast cancer genes. Most people are understandably terrified to learn they may have inherited a gene fault giving them an 85% chance of developing breast cancer. The choices seem stark. Do we do nothing, be screened regularly, take preventive medicines... or take the plunge and almost totally eradicate the risk by electing to have surgery pre-emptively? That suggestion to some is at best 'drastic' and even unacceptable.
This calendar has highlighted some 25 gorgeous girls who have taken this step. They have felt enabled to move on with their lives and are now aiming to reassure others that 'it's not so bad'. Their pictures are stunning. The stories emotive, but also hugely uplifting.
We hope the calendar will also raise much needed funds to keep this essential 24 hour Helpline service available to all.
