Bringing Families Together to Prevent Hereditary Disease

ConnectMyVariant.org, Bringing Families Together to Prevent Hereditary Disease  ConnectMyVariant is an educational health-focused nonprofit organization that supports individuals and families that may be at risk of hereditary disease, such as cancer, in early detection and prevention efforts.

Knowing and sharing family health history can be life-saving. The same genetic variant that may increase the risk of cancer or heart disease can be shared with grandparents, parents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, and cousins — even cousins several times removed.
