    Christen and Lisa found themselves in a space they didn’t quite belong – they joined forces, to create a charity and community, for others with genetic alterations. You have your medical professionals to talk about surgery, recovery, pain meds. You have BRCA+ Chat to talk to you about T-Rex arms, wiping your butt, and delving into dating with no nipples and night sweats.
