My name is Ruth and I will keep this short and sweet. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 when I was 27 years old. I am now 38 and need a hysterectomy but my family history rating for the risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer is classed by the NHS as moderate. Therefore I am not eligible for the BRCA gene test. But the test is the only way To determine the extent of the hysterectomy surgery. My only option is to pay for the test privetly which is well over £1300. I have carried out several fund raising events and raised over £350 which is amazing. One of my options to raise the funds was through crowd funding. So if anyone would like to offer funding towards my BRCA gene test then it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading.
