Meet the Neave sisters.
On the left is Veronica. In the middle is Chrissy. And on the right is Elisha.
These Queensland women come from a family with a long history of cancer.
Their mother has survived two bouts of breast cancer and is currently living with terminal bone cancer. One week ago, their father died of liver cancer. The sister’s grandmother, great grandmother and aunt have all died from breast cancer.
In 2007, Chrissy, Veronica and Elisha were all tested for a gene called BRCA2. Having the gene indicates a high probability of being diagnosed with breast or ovarian cancer in the future.
All three sisters tested positive.
