    Season 2 Episode 7: A Chinese Perspective – Hereditary Cancers, Genetic Testing and Language Accessibility (一個華人對癌症遺傳基因檢測的體驗)

    不要害怕做遺傳性癌症檢測,它可以輓救生命。

    This episode of the GOSH Podcast is very special - it is our first episode recorded entirely in another language! Stephanie met with Rose Lee, a Chinese patient who was diagnosed with both breast cancer and ovarian cancer. After her ovarian cancer diagnosis, she received hereditary cancer testing where she discovered she had a BRCA1 mutation. 

    Rose talks about her journey to this discovery and the impact it had on her friends/family. She also talks candidly about the importance of language accessibility and how important the Chinese Support Group at BC Cancer was in her journey.
