BIG RAPIDS – She knew there was a chance. She knew her chances were higher than most. Even so, when Molly Pretzlaff, 35, of Big Rapids, was diagnosed with cancer, the news felt surreal.
“We have a very extensive family history of breast cancer,” Pretzlaff said. “Seven years ago, my dad was diagnosed with breast cancer. Because he is a man and that’s super rare, and because his mom and aunt had breast cancer, he got genetic testing done. At that time he sent my sister and I in for basic mammograms. She was 32 and had breast cancer.”
