"Positive Results: Making the Best Decisions When You're at High Risk of Breast or Ovarian Cancer is a book long overdue.

Host of The Group Room® cancer talk radio show and author of Cancer Talk: Voices of Hope and Endurance from The Group Room, the World's Largest Cancer Support Group.
"I learned I was positive for the BRCA2 mutation at age 34 -- 7 years younger than my mother was at her first diagnosis of breast cancer. Shortly thereafter, facing unthinkable choices and desperate for information, I had the good fortune to meet Joi and read Positive Results. This book answered every question I had, anticipated many that hadn't yet occurred to me, and continues to serve as an invaluable resource as I weigh my risk management options. Positive Results has helped me to take an informed, proactive approach to my genetic status, and I would recommend it to anyone at high risk for breast and ovarian cancer, at every step of his or her journey." --Suzanne Ennis, BRCA2+, Manhattan Beach, CA
