Finding out if you have the 'cancer gene' can be an emotional journey


​KUSA - It's the information age and almost any answer can be found with the click of a mouse.  Now, thanks to the magic of science, information about your health is easier than ever to obtain too.

A company called Color is helping people learn more about their genes. Specifically, gene mutations that can indicate a higher risk for cancer.  It just takes a little spit in a tube and a stamp or two.

A few weeks after you mail in your DNA a genetics counselor will reach out and let you know whether you have the BRCA 1 or 2 mutation.
