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 ).

It will cost between 200$ and 400$ in 2019. I would start with 23andme. https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/first-direct-to-consumer-brca-test-authorized-by-fda-29991
