Yodeah: Strong Women Making Powerful Choices

How one simple test empowered these women with the knowledge they needed to make life-saving decisions about BRCA mutations and cancer for themselves and for their families.

Ali Rogin, PBS NewsHour Producer and author of “Beat Breast Cancer Like a Boss”, Rabbi Laila Haas, Director of Adult Learning and Growth at CAJE and Yodeah Board Member, Dr. Liz Etkin-Kramer, Yodeah Founder and Gynecologist, will share their journey and the choices they made to ensure a long, healthy life for themselves and to avoid passing the BRCA mutation on to their children. One in 40 Ashkenazi Jewish men and women carry a BRCA mutation which can lead to a higher risk of breast, ovarian, melanoma and prostate cancer. There is also a 50% chance of passing this mutation on to the next generation and most don’t know. If you know you carry this mutation, there are pro-active measures you can take to mitigate these risks and significantly reduce your chance of developing cancer.
