Well I do know... I like the jeans/genes.  Or at least I think they look really good on me!  This drawing was done by a breast cancer survivour, who although did not test positive for the BRCA mutations still felt it important to document.

Perhaps there will be more mutations found later ...  a BRCA3 or BRCA4.  We do know that there are still women who have a strong family history who got breast cancer at a young age and DO NOT have the BRCA1 or 2 mutations.  Perhaps there is another we do not know of yet?  Or maybe not.  

I for one, will be forever great-full to have this 'rear view'.  I could have still been wearing this pair of jeans, and just not known it until it was too late to take preventative actions.
