About 10 percent of all incidences of cancer are caused by inherited gene mutations which increase the risk for developing certain types of cancer. People living with these inherited gene changes also have a 50 percent chance of passing the mutation down to their children. For people living with this high risk, it’s important to know the facts, how to manage this risk and what treatment options are available.

Joining guest host Linda House to discuss living with the risk of developing hereditary cancer is Lisa Schlager, Vice President of Community Affairs for Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered (FORCE) and Karen Hurley, a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in hereditary risk counseling.
