Those with risky genes carry inherited gene mutations that can drastically increase their chance of developing aggressive cancer, often at a young age. But there is hope in the form of increased cancer screening, to find cancer early when most treatable, and, for many, cancer risk reduction options proven to be up to 95% effective. Unfortunately, of the at least 1.3 million Canadians who carry risky genes, the vast majority remain unaware, denying them access to life-saving medical recommendations and of those who are aware, many remain isolated and misinformed.
