  1. Keynote Theatre | Early Diagnosis and Screening Focus Day
    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. From cold implants, to a warm heart – BRCA+ Chat scoops you up, like the little hug you needed. Find out more about the lived experience of a genetic alteration, and the charity that was formed by two women who met on social media.
