This year we surpassed
reached via in-person educational events since Oneinforty's inception in 2017. These events include symposia and "Shabbat Talks" at synagogues, as well as Oneinforty information tables at events hosted by our hospital partners. This testimonial from one of our symposium attendees sums up our mission in action:
"I don't know if we would have felt the same urgency to be tested for the BRCA gene mutations without the information that you made available to our synagogue's community. We discovered that a BRCA gene mutation runs in our family and almost certainly caused a beloved family member to lose her life to ovarian cancer. It turns out that all of our adult children are BRCA+.
Now we can take action to effectively manage our cancer risk. Oneinforty's work is lifesaving."
Many thanks to Temple Emanuel and Temple Reyim in Newton, MA, Temple Emek Shalom in Ashland, OR and Temple Emanu-El in Marblehead, MA for hosting Oneinforty symposia this year.
