What people are saying about Advanced DNA Testing, a part of Cancer Guardian membership, and how it gives them piece of mind for the future.

  • Making Cancer Guardian an integral part of our benefits offering for our own employees, in addition to adding this valuable program to the suite of benefits that we make available to all Keystone clients has been one of the easiest decisions I have made as a CEO.

    I think this program could be one of the most personally rewarding things I have ever had the privilege of being a part of in my career. It’s a way to show our employees and our clients how much we care about their well-being.

    The WGA team has provided flawless enrollment and administration to our staff and our clients giving us the highest level of confidence in everything they do.

  • I was very shocked when I heard that I had the mutation. I have zero cancer in my family. We knew nothing about BRCA2. I really felt that everyone needed to be tested right away. I’m just so thankful we can be proactive and do what we need to do to protect ourselves.

  • Corey had an Advanced DNA Test that determined that she was positive for the mutation ROS-1. This qualified her for targeted therapy, and she was started on the drug, Crizotinib, 3 days later.

    As a result, Corey’s cancer went into remission. She takes her precision medicine twice a day, with minimal side-effects, and keeps her cancer in remission. In her own words “I feel like I’m back to the high I was at before, a good place where I could continue my life.”
