Writer, Performance artist
I am a mutant. Like Angelina Jolie I have the BRCA1 genetic mutation. Last year, I had a preventive bilateral mastectomy, reconstruction and hysterectomy -- all while helping care for my mother who was dying of cancer. As a performing artist and believer in the healing power of laughter, music and sharing, I wrote a one-woman musical comedy "The Mutant Diaries: Unzipping My Genes". UPDATE: The Mutant Diaries is coming to DVD. By pre-ordering your copy on the Kickstarter campaign, you can help ensure that this important resource can reach so many more women in need!
