Genetic testing revealed early-stage cancer

Shari Conradson was 62 years old before she discovered that she has a genetic mutation that significantly raises the risk of breast and ovarian cancer. And thanks to Kaiser Permanente, she learned about it just in time.

“I was incredibly lucky; I had a new ob-gyn and I told her that my mother had died of ovarian cancer and also had breast cancer. She said I should get genetic testing and referred me to the Hereditary Cancer Program right on the spot,” said Conradson, a retired public school teacher who lives in Sebastopol.
