My bad. I should have mentioned this as soon as I found out about it.
PBS is allowing free viewing of Joanna Rudnick's documentary "In The Family" online until October 31, only two days away. It is Joanna's own story as a woman with a family history of breast cancer who chooses to get tested for BRCA, the "breast cancer gene."
The women in my family also have a history of breast cancer and my oldest sister already had herself tested. She does not have the gene. She told me about this film but I haven't viewed the one-hour film yet. I plan to do that tonight after class.
If you saw it when it originally aired on October 1st or if you choose to view it online in the next two days, let me know your thoughts, ok?
