Three sisters from Lancashire are urging women to get tested for a gene linked to breast cancer, after it killed two of their relatives.
Eileen Eve, Maxine Betts and Maureen Dixon have a faulty gene in their family. One has already had her breasts removed to cut her risk.
The actress Angelina Jolie has revealed today she too has had a double mastectomy because of gene risk. Now, the sisters want other women to make an informed choice.
