Mr BRCA1

Why me and “Mr BRCA1”?

Well, the way I looked at it, having the gene was like having a third person in mine and my husband’s relationship. Always there lurking in the background like some ‘bad ex’ from your past waiting to pounce and ruin your plans. However as time went on, Mr BCRA1 went from being the bearer of bad news to the bringer of hope.

Mr BRCA1 was the one that changed our lives – and not for the worse. OK there are operations, blood, bruising, tears etc to look forward to, but I think you have to look at the bigger picture and ask “would I rather have my real boobs and be 6ft under, or have fake ones and live my life the way I had planned?”

If it wasn’t for Mr BRCA1 we wouldn’t have realised that if we did want children, we had better think about it soon, as the chance of being diagnosed with breast or ovarian cancer at an early age could possibly mean that decision would be taken out of our hands altogether.

All in all, I can say that knowing about Mr BRCA1 has had a positive effect. Yes there have been ups and downs, and I’m sure that there are many more to come! but, as cliche as it sounds, it really has brought Mark and I closer together and give us focus in our lives.

Now… given that Mr BRCA1 is hazardous to health, we have decided that real breasts and ovaries are a luxury that I cannot afford to have, so these will be removed.

When it boils down to it I am quite stubborn. This is one thing that I refuse to let beat me – so any help I can get from the medical profession is more than greatly received!
