“The diagnosis of the BRCA gene initially feels like a death sentence”

“You know, the thing is, I’ve always known. I always felt like I was going to get breast cancer. Because of the family history,” says 50-year-old Rhonda Richardson. Rhonda is the eldest daughter in her family of two younger sisters and one older and one younger brother who grew up in north Dublin.

From the age of 33, he attended a breast screening clinic for an annual mammogram because of the prevalence of breast cancer in her family: Rhonda’s maternal grandmother, three paternal aunts, and one maternal aunt all had breast cancer. Going to her scan didn’t make her nervous, she says now. “I actually thought it was great to go in and get the opportunity.”
