How does the genetic testing process work?

Discovering your hereditary cancer risk is easy. With our help, you can do it in 3 simple steps.

Take the Quiz

Our short online assessment is based on guidelines used by doctors to help us determine if you may be at increased risk for developing hereditary cancers that can be identified by a genetic test.

Speak with a Genetic Counselor or Genetics Nurse

If your online quiz results indicate that you may be at an increased risk, our nurse coordinators will reach out to connect you with a healthcare professional licensed to provide genetic counseling to help you better understand your risk and options.

Get Tested

If appropriate during the call, your genetic counselor or genetics nurse will order a testing kit to be sent to you. You can complete the test at home or with your primary doctor who will then send the kit to us.

Post-test counseling is also available after your results are in to help you fully understand your risk, guide you hand-in-hand through the next steps, and provide support for you and your loved ones.

Are you ready to discover your risk?


“Both my mother and aunt had breast cancer—I had a feeling it wasn’t just a coincidence. When the results from my Hereditary Cancer Survey revealed that I might be at risk for hereditary cancer, the nurse on the phone guided me through the next steps for genetic testing. I’m so glad I did. I, too, have the gene mutation and have been working with my doctor to decrease my risk.”
