1 in 40 Jews of Ashkenazi descent carries a BRCA (breast cancer) gene mutation, compared to 1 in 400 in the general population, making Jewish families 10x more susceptible to hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Furthermore, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime, and more than 13,000 women under 40 are diagnosed annually.

Learn how to take the necessary steps to protect your health before a diagnosis. Join AEPhi, Protect Our Breasts, and Hillel for a free dinner and discussion to find out how to make safer choices to protect your breasts through the everyday products you use. All are welcome.
