The aim of this blog is to spread awareness of the BRCA1 Mutation and ovarian cancer, especially in the very rare cases when women below the age of 30 are diagnosed. Sometimes, such as in Laura’s case, the symptoms mirror the symptoms of other bowel and stomach conditions. We ask that when you share our posts, please use the hashtag #FindingCyril to help us achieve our aim.

We would also welcome stories from other women who are going through the same experience or who have gone through it previously. If you want you share your stories with us, please either email it to findingcyril@gmail.com or send it to us via our ‘contact us’ page.
