Moms Who Kick Fund BRCA 1 and 2 Study: Need Research Participants

February 27th, 2014


Moms Who Kick has funded a research study being conducted at The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, part of the North Shore-LIJ Health System on Long Island. The study is being conducted to learn more about how BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 genetic variants act and are influenced by other genes or environmental factors and lead to the development of breast cancer . Ultimately the researchers hope this knowledge can prove useful for determining individual risk of cancer among BRCA 1 and 2 carriers. The researchers, Annette Lee, PhD and Iuliana Shapira, MD, are collaborating with an international group of researchers, known as CIMBA (the Consortium of Investigators of Modifiers of BRCA 1/2), to conduct the study.

Calling for Participants
The researchers seek participants for the study. To participate, you must be over the age of 18 (men and women are encouraged to participate), and
have tested positive for either a BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 genetic variant. You do not have to have been diagnosed with cancer.

If you choose to participate, you will be asked to provide a blood sample (up to 2 tablespoons) and provide information about yourself, your medical history and your family history. The sample and information you provide will be used for this study and also stored in a specimen bank for use in additional future studies.

To learn more about this study, please contact a study nurse:

In September, 2012, Moms Who Kick Inc. made a pledge to NS-LIJ to donate $25,000 to the Breast & Ovarian Cancer Studies being conducted by Dr. Iuliana Shapira and Dr. Annette Lee of the Feinstein Institute for Research. While we had five years to pay off the pledge, Moms Who Kick Inc. was able to fulfill it in just five short weeks! As a result of this pledge, the Moms Who Kick name is displayed on the Benefactor’s Wall at the Monter Cancer Center in Lake Success, NY.
