All North Alabama Residents can learn their cancer risk

Cancer touches the lives of far too many. It is estimated that 30,210 Alabama men and women will be diagnosed with cancer, and 10,520 will die in 2022. The simple saliva test, offered by Kailos Genetics, screens for the well-known BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes which increase breast and ovarian cancer risk, as well as several dozen other genes linked to breast, ovarian, colon, prostate, pancreatic, and other cancers.

In 2022, we surpassed 6,000 Information is Power participants. Today the Information is Power test remains for FREE to those 28-30 years of age in Madison, Limestone, Jackson, Marshall, or Morgan Counties. In 2023, we will welcome Dr. Mary-Claire King, the scientist who discovered the BRCA1 gene, back to Huntsville to celebrate our success to date. Thanks to the support of our sponsors, this program continues to offer members of our community an opportunity to learn about cancer risku

The Information is Power cancer-screening test is offered at a reduced rate of $129 for those 19 and older and is still FREE for those 28, 29, and 30 years of age in the 5 Alabama counties. There is also an option to gift a test to someone you love in most states.
