Feeling Empowered Through Genetic Testing

On last week’s episode, Ashely Dedmon shared her experiences as a young caregiver and how it impacted how she approached her own health. Today we are going to continue our conversation with Ashley to talk about the impact of being born into three generations of women affected by breast cancer, losing her mother to the disease and watching her father battle prostate cancer shortly thereafter.  Ashley was 22 years old and fearful that she was next. It was then that she took matters into her own hands and immediately reached out to her doctors, who suggested genetic counseling and screening for the BRCA genetic mutation.  Today we’ll learn from Ashley what those tests found, what she did next, and how it changed the course of her life

The Impact of Being a Young Caregiver

Caregiving can be a difficult and very personal role on many levels. Assisting a loved one through their cancer diagnosis, helping with daily activities, providing support and helping to make treatment decisions may all be a part of the responsibilities. When young adults are the caregiver taking care of a parent, they face many unique challenges, such as having more duties to juggle, starting their own families or careers and coming to terms with taking care of someone who has always taken care of them. Today’s guest Ashley Dedmon supported both of her parents in their cancer journeys and is here today to speak about the challenges and blessings of that time in her life, as well as how it impacted how she approached her own health.
