Writer Amy Rauch Neilson, a woman of indomitable spirit, is the creative force behind this blog. It’s in the Genes is dedicated to women with breast cancer, particularly those who carry a mutation on the BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 gene which predisposes them to an early, aggressive form of breast and ovarian cancer. Amy, currently undergoing chemotherapy for the second time, is a rebel with a cause. “I want to spread the word far and wide. I know it won’t just touch lives — it will save them.”
It’s in the Genes is more than a blog about cancer. It’s a blog about life. Insightful, original, uplifting, poignant, candid, and sincere, Amy’s writing vibrates with positive energy and vitality. Readers may cry. They will definitely LOL. That is Amy Rauch Neilson’s gift. “My goal is to reach 5,000 subscriptions to my blog by March 3, 2011,” says Amy, “the day that would have marked five years cancer-free for me. Though I won’t be celebrating that mark on that day —not this year, anyway — help me to make it a day of celebration.”
