Following is the 60 Minutes episode featuring the stories of Krystal Barter and Stacey Gadd.
Breaking the Curse It’s a family curse handed down from generation to generation. And there’s only one radical way to stop it. The two young women you’re about to meet are just starting out in life, but there’s a huge shadow hanging over them. Stacey Gadd’s only 22, Krystal Barter is 25. They’ve watched their mothers and grandmothers fight breast cancer. And they know they could be next. Both have inherited a genetic flaw which is likely, sooner or later, to cause cancer. But Stacey and Krystal aren’t going to wait, they’ve decided to act now. A decision they hope and pray the next generation will never have to face.
