When Suzanne browses through a family photo album, she can’t help noticing that most of her female relatives have now passed away. 10 years ago Suzanne was first diagnosed with breast cancer, a disease which killed her sister, mother and grandmother. Carrying a breast cancer gene, Suzanne never anticipated that she would be the sole survivor of cancer in her family. This 5 minute documentary sees Suzanne recall her personal journey battling cancer and highlights the genetic testing currently used to identify those at risk of contracting breast cancer.
