History of cancer

My fiance has cancer in her family. Her mother's side was pretty much decimated by colon cancer. Her half sister is a suvivor. Another relative in Australia was also a cancer survivor. Recently Amy received a letter, the results of that aunt's genetic test, determining which gene mutation caused the cancer.
Today, Amy got the results of her own genetic test to see if that gene was mutated in her. Her chances of having the gene mutation were 50/50. If she has the mutation, she'd have 80-90% of getting colon cancer. Survivable, but a future hysterecomy would be inevitable.
The results:
No gene mutation was found!

Celebrate life! My angel's gonna live!
