Not that simple: Just your mother's ovarian cancer is not enough to qualify, for genetic screening. Have to meet other criteria myriad genetic lab has patent on brca i & ii testing , through your doctor out side usa can be tested , by contacting mblom@myriod.Com and it is expensive ( most of med insurances will not cover ).
