Breast cancer genomics | Genomics England

Breast cancer genomics | Genomics England

Three sisters, Mary, Sandra and Kerry Lloyd all developed breast cancer within 15 months of each other. They joined the 100,000 Genomes Project at Leicester’s Hospitals, which is part of the East of England NHS Genomic Medicine Centre. They were very keen to participate in the project – to understand more about their cancer, to understand if it was inherited and what the risks to other family members might be.

The three sisters are not the only ones affected by cancer in their family. Their late mother had also been affected, as well as two other female relatives over three generations.
