How BLOWS1 got its name

I will eternally be grateful to my good friend Meghna, who is this amazing super super smart doctor, for giving me new perspective on the BRCA1 and BRCA2 name.    

She picked me up for dinner last week, because my sister had blocked my car into the garage (long story...would take another blog!)  Anyway, we were talking about my current predicament...and she looked at me and said, ever so gently...."This blows!"....."They should just call it BLOWS 1 and BLOWS 2".  

Needless to say, I laughed so hard I almost spit out what I was eating....and the name stuck.
From then on, BRCA1 will always be BLOWS1 to me!'s a much more fitting name I think. ;)


  1. I like that. BLOWS 1! I'm sorry that's you're having a rough time of it. Just let me know if I can do anything.


  2. You are a warrior girl and you can do anything! We are all here to support you every step of the way.

    Lots of Love
