Hanke Family Test Results (Clip 3 of 3)

In the third clip from the In the Family lesson plan, the Hankes, a family of three sisters, get the results of their genetic tests and find that two of the three sisters tested positive for the breast cancer gene. Students should discuss how factors (e.g., age, marital status, family history) might influence a person's decisions about genetic testing. What might happen if genetic testing for this mutation were not available?
