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.
