Gender screening discrimination

My mother developed breast cancer, aged 38, and died two years later. In my case, after contracting breast cancer, and two years later prostate cancer, my genetic test showed a BRCA1 mutation with a variation of unknown significance. My daughter, aged 48, was enrolled in a public screening program, which includes an annual MRI scan. However, my son, a few years younger, has no access to a public screening program and is on his own as far as check-ups go. This gender discrimination needs redressing.
