My cousin's wife comes from a family like that. There are 5 girls and are 5 have gone through a breast cancer diagnosis. Some more than once. 2 of the sisters died (one from breast cancer and the other from uterine cancer after beating breast cancer).
Their mother died from breast cancer. They all tested positive for the BRCA mutation. My cousin's wife had a bilateral mastectomy and hysterectomy after her diagnosis. That was about 6 years ago and so far so good.
