We just received a call letting us know that the genetics test (BRCA) which determines if Aly is at higher risk than normal to get cancer came back negative. This is a great piece of news that has made our day.
Had this test come back positive then it would have made the bi-lateral mastectomy a must and then also would mean that the ovaries would also have to be removed. Then thinking further down the line it means less worry for our children.
The prayers are without a doubt being heard because every doctor that looked at Aly's family history has all but guaranteed that she would come back positive for the genetic mutation.
By no means the only positive we have experienced but to date one of our biggest victories in the fight we will win against cancer.
