October 9, 2014: Bahamas Breast Cancer Initiative Foundation Executive Director Melissa Major and Genetic Counselor Isla Thompson discuss breast cancer in The Bahamas. We get details about the shocking findings from the genetic testing that’s been taking place in the country, the prevalence of the BRCA gene in Bahamian women and men, and the early onset of breast cancer in this population, which is generally 20 years earlier compared with world populations. We also talk about the 2015 “Celebrating the Beauty in Courage and Triumph” Calendar, featuring 12 Bahamian Breast Cancer survivors.
