20 years ago Mary-Clare King discovered the mutation linked to hereditary breast cancer-BRCA (BRCA1 and BRCA2) and it took her and other researchers 25 years to get there due to funding issues and maybe more significantly, the lack of computational speed. With many cancers in both our families (BRCA related and not), we know the power of early detection and risk prevention surgeries and have experienced the tragic loss of late stage and hard-to-cure cancers. Bravo to Grail. We need science and technology and passionate people willing to fight the odds.
