Did you know that Thanksgiving is National Family Health History day?  If you have a gene mutation that increases your risk for triple-negative breast cancer, your relatives may have the mutation too.

Do you have an inherited gene mutation that increases your chance to develop cancer?  Researchers at UTHealth are studying whether family members are ready to have genetic testing for a mutation found in one of their relatives, called cascade testing, and we are seeking your help!  

Help us learn about your family’s readiness to have cascade testing by taking our anonymous research survey.  The survey has been approved by the UTHealth Institutional Review Board and takes most people only 10-15 minutes to complete.  At the end of the survey you can enter for a chance to win a gift card!

If you would like to participate or learn more about the study, please click or copy/paste the link:" rel="nofollow -

Or you can find a link to the survey from our Twitter page: @CascadeStudy
