Answer by Tarkarri
This varies depending on the country you live in and the charity you choose to support.
The BRAC gene is patented in USA, not elsewhere.
Less than 10% of breast cancers are due to this gene anyway.
Research is still needed on the other 90% of breast cancers.
In other countries treatments for BRAC can still be undertaken.
Money also goes into awareness campaigns, educational literature, free or subsidised mammograms, specially trained nurses, support services for patients and their families etc.
