But within a year both her younger sister Angel and her older sister Kathleen shared the same devastating news.

And then it was just horrific to then hear that Angel was diagnosed and then Kathy O Brien told TODAY‘s Amy Robach” That was very hard.”

Breast cancer three sisters lives changed

The women have the same breast cancer gene mutation which increases the exposure of developing the disease. And they have a family history of breast cancer .Their mother survived the disease when they were kids and it claimed the life of their maternal great grandmother. Only 5 to 7 percent of breast cancers are genetic and the actuality that all three sisters developed the disease at the same time makes their story even more extraordinary. Because most breast cancers are not indigenous it’s very uncommon for three sisters to have breast cancer at the same time.
