I can only echo "Get out of town!!" It is so hard to believe that in this age of knowledge, technology, etc that we still have to fight for the right of brest cancer knowledge and good health. Keep fighting and find a medical staff that will help you. Write all the letters you can to as many people as you can. Even the AMA needs to get a letter. You represent at least 16 people when you write one letter. Ask others to get involved and help you.
Best of luck to you and many prayers,

Thanks so much for the link to FORCE. I have joined up and posted a question for them. I found a genetic counselor in my city and emailed her. Hopefully she'll email me back this week. Part of me is hesitant to do it because I don't want to obsess about it. But then part of me is already obsessing about certain things so I figure this may help me relax (if it's negative), or give my doctors a reason to be more diligent (if it's positive). It seems like many who test positive for it end up doing prophylactic mastectomies and oopher's. I'd like to think I wouldn't let the fear get to me that way, but then I don't know. :o/ Definitely food for thought.
