Oneinforty is part of a network of organizations that are meeting the unique needs of individuals and families facing their risk of BRCA-related hereditary cancers including:
Basser Center for BRCA
The Basser Center for BRCA at Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center is the first comprehensive center for the research, treatment, and prevention of BRCA-related cancers. Devoted to advancing care for people affected by BRCA gene mutations, the Basser Center’s unique model provides funding for collaborative research, education, and outreach programs around the world.
Bloom with BRCA Blog
The Bloom with BRCA blog was created for individuals who test positive (or are considering genetic testing) for the BRCA1/2 gene mutations, a result that often creates pressure about which path of cancer prevention to take. The blog is written in a style that sparks opportunities for introspection and reflection, as that is where the magic happens for personal decision-making. Rather than wither with worry, feel empowered and supported to Bloom with BRCA!
The BRCA Foundation, a nonprofit that primarily funds research into BRCA cancers, also offers low-cost genetic screening through its Family Testing Program, a series of informative and empowering podcasts called "Positive Perspectives" and opportunities for people with BRCA gene mutations to participate in groundbreaking research studies through its BRCA Registry.
