    Genetic Testing Helps 3 Sisters Fight Breast Cancer

    When Dawn Myers was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017, it put her whole family on notice.

    After finding out she had a lump, Myers had a mammogram. She later had the cancer removed surgically, then was recommended to come to Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital.

    “I was referred over here, and got the rest of the blood test going and found out it was genetic, which I had never heard of before in my life,” Myers said.

    It was the start of a journey that would include her sisters Sandy Michalak and Kim Kyle.
