Jon and Mindy Gray Throw Bash to Focus on Genes’ Role in Cancer

Jon Gray stood by his wife Mindy Tuesday night as they welcomed about a thousand guests to Cipriani Wall Street. The occasion was a fundraiser for the Basser Center for BRCA, which they founded after Mindy’s sister Faith, who carried a BRCA gene mutation, died of ovarian cancer.

To Dr. Susan Domchek, an oncologist at the University of Pennsylvania, the phone call from Jon and Mindy Gray last summer was no different from many others she has received from people seeking information about genetic mutations that can cause cancer.
