Pamela Fink Says She Was Fired After Getting a Double Mastectomy To Prevent Breast Cancer

Fink Hopes Others Don't Hesitate to Get Tested In Fear Of Losing Their Jobs

With two sisters who are breast cancer survivors, Fink says that she hopes her case allows others to realize how important early detection is.

"The truth of the matter, nobody needs to die from the disease anymore. We have really good detection and really good ways to get people better," said Fink. "The bigger picture is that the technology and science is just incredible in what it can determine."

"If people are afraid to even have the genetic testing then how many lives are we going to lose because people just don't want to rock the boat?"
