Patient Video - Alicia’s story: What genetic mutations do you have? When and how were you tested?
Alicia talks about the experiences she had with genetic and biomarker testing following her ovarian cancer diagnosis and recurrences. The tests she had revealed she was BRCA-negative and HRD-positive (homologous recombination deficiency). She found it reassuring to have her testing done and shares her story in the hope that it will help other women with ovarian cancer.
