Even in these tough times, it is easy to learn your cancer risk
Cancer is still touching the lives of many. Almost 30,000 Alabama men and women will be diagnosed with cancer, and more than 10,000 will die in 2021. The simple saliva test, offered by Kailos Genetics, screens for the well-known BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, as well as several dozen other genes linked to breast, ovarian, colon, prostate, pancreatic, and other cancers.
To help us reach our goal of 5,000 tests, HudsonAlpha offered the Information is Power test for FREE to those 19 years of age and older in Madison, Limestone, Jackson, Marshall, or Morgan Counties in 2020. You rose to the challenge and on June 29, we reached our goal of 5,000 tests and at the start of 2021 we are at 5,200 tests. Thanks to all of you! We are gathering support to fund more free tests to a wider age range (stay in touch by filling in the form on the bottom of this page). Through 2021, the Information is Power cancer-screening test is still offered at a reduced rate of $129 for those 19 and older, and is still FREE for those 28, 29, and 30 years of age in the 5 counties. There is also an option to gift a test to someone you love.
What you learn can have an impact on your life and the life of your family. Please help us spread the word.
Simple to take test and easy to understand
The Information is Power test is mailed to you with a pre-stamped return envelope. The information you learn can be shared with your physician and might also be important to other members of your family. Our genetic counselors are always here to help explain positive results.
