Erika Stallings is an attorney, writer and BRCA awareness advocate. In June 204 she learned that she carried a BRCA2 gene mutation, a hereditary cancer mutation that causes up to an 85% lifetime risk of developing breast cancer. In December 2014 she underwent a preventative double mastectomy which lowered her risk of breast cancer to less than 5%.
She chats to us about her advocacy, inheriting a cancer-causing gene mutation and racial disparities in the healthcare system.
