The Jewels in Our Genes Study - an African American Family Study of Breast Cancer
The research team is studying why some African American families have multiple cases of breast cancer.
This study will help to better understand if there are undiscovered genes unique to African Americans that may predict early breast cancer risk.
Breast cancer survivors AND their relatives who are also breast cancer survivors are being recruited to the study.
