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,

People that I know and love have lost their lives prematurely to cancer as a direct result of being a carrier of a mutated gene. Lynch syndrome, the name given to this genetic condition causes cancers that if detected early can be treated more effectively. We can save lives by educating people about Lynch Syndrome and directing potential carriers to genetic testing and counseling.
