     Angie Lucchi and Amy Shields are twin sisters who share everything, including the inherited mutated BRCA gene that can cause breast cancer.

    When other family members contracted the disease, Angie and Amy proactively decided to have their breasts and reproductive organs removed, greatly reducing their chances of getting breast cancer. Both women made very personal choices that were right for them. Angie, married with two children, and Amy, single with no children share their experiences.
