Breast Cancer Sisters 05 July 2007
Louise Lambert, Michelle King and Joanne Kavanagh
Three sisters who had preventative surgery for cancer on the same day.

Three sisters, Michelle King, Joanne Kavanagh and Louise Lambert all inherited a gene that dramatically increased their risk of getting cancer.  All three women decided to undergo extensive preventative surgery; even having hysterectomies on the same day. They join Miriam O'Reilly to explain why they opted to take such drastic steps, and how sharing the experience has helped them cope.
