Let’s beat cancer.One family at a time.
Share life-saving information with your relatives.
GIFT is the Genetic Information & Family Testing study
We know that talking with family about cancer risk is not always easy. Even if you’ve already told your relatives, or even if you don’t talk to some of them, GIFT can help.
GIFT is an online program developed by cancer patients, family members, and doctors that offers a new way to:
- Share life-saving information about family cancer risk and ways to lower that risk
- Connect interested family members to easy, at-home genetic testing
How GIFT works
Complete the GIFT survey you received in the mail. Then come back to this website and sign up for the study.
Use the GIFT program to reach out to your family members.
Your family members can learn about cancer risk and how to get at-home genetic testing.
Why GIFT is important
Who we are
We are cancer researchers from across the United States who are studying genetic testing in families.

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.

As a cancer genetics physician, I help patients reduce their cancer risks. I’m excited about this opportunity to reduce cancer risks for their families.
Steven Katz, MD, MPH
It’s a privilege to be with a great team working for patients and their families to improve communication about cancer prevention.
The Genetic Information and Family Testing (GIFT) study is funded by the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society.
