On Tuesday, May 8th, I had my blood drawn for my genetic testing for the mutated P16 gene. I’m already in the “special” high risk group because I’ve had 2 primary Melanoma’s. If I test positive for this mutated gene, it bumps up my likelihood of having more primary Melanoma’s as well as recurrent ones, not to mention I would be placed in the “high risk” group for Pancreatic cancer to boot. I’m a tough cookie, but man do I need a break from all this cancer crap. If I do test postivie for this mutation, then it’s possible my brother and his daughters, as well as my 3 babies carry this mutation. I won’t know anything for about 2 very long weeks.
