Paola Gerber: Baylor Scott & White reduced my risk for breast cancer.

Paola Gerber didn't have breast cancer, but genetic testing revealed high likelihood that she would in years to come. According to her doctors, the best way to prevent it would be a double mastectomy. "It was really scary," she recalls, "but it was the right decision." Paola recovered quickly, and her risk of breast cancer went from 87% to 5%. "I'm representing my country in a beauty contest, so I worried that the surgery would affect my appearance," says Paola, "but I look and feel better than ever."
