Those near and dear to my heart have suffered and lost their lives to this tragic illness. I believe that with further research and education, many lives would be saved.

I recently learned that my brother was diagnosed with Lynch Syndrome and reached out to CCARE for information. Both Drs. Sharon and Neil Perlman were extremely knowledgable and also very supportive. I'm very grateful for such a professional and helpful organization.

I became aware of Lynch Syndrome and its' impact on families about two years ago as a friend's family struggled with the loss of a loved one to colon cancer at a young age. Now related family members live with the ominous realization that they too may carry the genetic trait for this syndrome. I support fightlynch.org in its' goal to raise awareness about this genetic disease and to support research for a cure.

My cousin died of Lynch Syndrome when he was 5 months old. His death was especially hard for us because we weren't entirely sure why he was taken from us; at this time we didn't know about Lynch Syndrome. Sixteen years later we finally got our answer, and now we can do something about it! My family is so grateful for C Care, and the chance to fight this syndrome, so that others won't have to suffer what we suffered. Thank you, C Care!

Lynch has impacted my very dear friend's life and has brought about loss that she shouldn't have had to experience. This non-profit was established to educate others so that progress can be made through early detection and research.

Lynch Syndrome takes far too many lives every year. This organization has undertaken the daunting task of educating the public and the medical community of this inherited syndrome. Through education, people will be able to get the appropriate genetic testing that could help save their life.

I am supporting Colon Cancer Alliance for Research and Education for Lynch Syndrome because it will help prevent the tragic loss of lives of too many. By educating the public, people will learn if they need to be tested for Lynch. A family history, exam and some tests can save a life, which might be yours. Please help yourself and others by supporting CCARE,

I wanted to help out with this organization because of the devastating effects of Lynch Syndrome that I have seen in the family of a close friend. Hopefully with education of the public and medical professionals, additional screening and genetic testing will lower the incidence and severity of cancers in people at risk.
