Transcript of a symposium on The Jewish Family Facing Breast Cancer. The ripple effect of a breast cancer diagnosis impacts the heart of the family and its extended members. From the time family members hear that a wife, daughter, sister, aunt, or mother has been diagnosed, they may be overwhelmed with a rush of anxious feelings. They may also feel deluged with the flood of information available from the medical team, the internet, spiritual resources, and the community at large. What do we need to know about breast cancer genetics and its impact on the Jewish family? How can I better support the woman I love as she journeys through breast cancer diagnosis and treatment? What impact will a breast cancer diagnosis have on all of the members of our family?
