My name is Diane Lucking and I live in Kirkby Mallory Leicestershire. I am married with two grown up sons.
My sister is Wendy Watson ( the founder of the helpline). I attended the family history clinic at Manchester and was one of the first people to take a linkage test to see if I carried a faulty Gene. Of the three family members taking the test at the same time I was found to be the only one not carrying the faulty gene and as a consequence cancelled the decision for preventative surgery.
The biggest bonus of my result was giving other family members the confirmation that we do have a 50/50 chance of not inheriting the faulty gene.
