“Typically, when people think about cancer research they think about finding cures, but the goal of this nonprofit is prevention, specifically for people with the BRCA gene … The potential here is transformative.”

– Linsey Davis, Good Morning America

Fact: 1 in 3 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, and the numbers are rising. Only prevention can stop this.

HeritX is changing the approach to cancer by putting prevention first. Prevention is the only way to spare our loved ones the trauma of cancer and its treatment.

Fact: People born with a BRCA gene mutation face an up to 90% risk of developing not only one but multiple kinds of cancer.

Millions of families are threatened by inherited BRCA cancer, generation after generation. They urgently need a preventive therapy.

Fact: Despite decades of research, cancer treatment is still agonizing and it takes an average of 15 years to develop new medicines.

HeritX has designed an accelerated roadmap to achieve a safe prevention in less than 10 years.

Inherited BRCA cancer prevention will be the gateway to all cancer prevention.

You can enable transformative progress and make cancer prevention a reality.
