GIFT is the Genetic Information & Family Testing study

GIFT gives families a new way to learn about their cancer risk and how to protect themselves from cancer.

GIFT can help your family members learn or learn more---without you needing to explain everything.

GIFT is an online family education program that offers people a new way to:

  • Learn about their cancer risk and how to protect themselves from cancer
  • Get low-cost, at home, saliva (spit) genetic testing

GIFT makes learning easy for more family members. GIFT can help your:

  • First-degree relatives: Parents, brothers, sisters, children
  • Second-degree relatives: Aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews

GIFT was created by cancer patients, family members, and doctors to educate families about genetic factors and cancer risk and help more families protect themselves from cancer.

I was a caregiver for my mother before she died from breast cancer. I learned first-hand how important good communication is for families dealing with cancer. This is why I dedicate my work to projects like the GIFT study.
