Both women and men are faced with difficult decisions when they carry a BRCA gene mutation or other hereditary cancer syndrome.
We meet the doctors and their patients grappling with these tough decisions like whether or not to to have preventative surgeries. Director Alan M. Blassberg tells the story of how this disease ripped his family apart and what he must face as a BRCA 2 positive male. The film highlights the message that men carry this mutation half the time and that this lack of information is deadly. A higher percentage of men with breast cancer die from it than women.
Dr. Kristi Funk, M.D Angelina Jolie’s surgeon, speaks passionately about the need for awareness and prevention. We also meet those who ultimately didn’t survive, they speak in the hope that their passing will help save the lives of others.
