Emily Epstein: How Genetic Testing Saved My Life
Genetic testing saved Emily’s life. Emily was fortunate that she has one of the three BRCA mutations that 23andMe tests for, but she now knows there are thousands of BRCA mutations that exist and are missed by most direct-to-consumer genetic tests like 23andMe. She guides people to consider clinical genetic testing so that they can receive a truly useful and comprehensive test. Emily feels that Panacea’s greatest value is that it enables people to view their body’s “roadmap” and empowers people to make life-saving decisions for themselves in a way that few other companies do.
