Hello!! I just recently found out I have Lynch through genetic testing. Cancer runs in my family with numerous people having the various Lynch cancers. Interestingly, I had what for now is still considered a non-Lynch cancer - Hodgkins Lymphoma - at the age of 26. No one in the family thought to get genetic testing until my mom was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer earlier this year. After my diagnosis, my husband and I decided to have our children tested and found out that my son is also positive. I know he and I have a long road ahead of us but am so happy that knowledge is power! #imaliveandkicking!
We would like to thank the talented genetic counseling student, Brianna McDaniels for creating this PSA about Lynch syndrome , AliveAndKickn and The HEROIC Registry for her genetic counseling studies at Emory University School of Medicine. Please share!
