Pretty is what changes : impossible choices, the breast cancer gene, and how I defied my destiny

by Queller, Jessica

Random House Australia, North Sydney, NSW, 2008

After her mother died of cancer, Jessica Queller took the test for a BRCA mutation – the genetic marker for breast and ovarian cancer. To her shock, the results came back virulently positive, meaning she had more than 85% chance of getting cancer herself. Vibrant, successful, single but still yearning for marriage and a family, 34-year-old Jessica found herself at the forefront of a scary new world where biotechnology offers an array of options – all loaded with ethical options.|(Extract from back cover)
