Weeble on testing for the BRCA gene:
"I was tested recently. I was referred by my oncologist. The counsellor drew up a family tree going back to grandparents and their siblings. It was a points system: 2 points for breast cancer and 10 for ovarian. I don't know about prostate as there was none in my family. I got 18 points and only just met the criteria for testing.
"My test came back negative. Good news for my daughter."
