TEAM-LEGS AGAINST LYNCH SYNDROME
We are riding to bring public awareness to Lynch Syndrome
My 3 daughter's and husband have Lynch Syndrome. This syndrome is a defect in repair genes that help your body to recognize unhealthy cell growth and stop it before it becomes cancer. There are mutiple mutations associated with Lynch Syndrome, my family has the MSH2 mutation. Having this mutation puts them at risk for many cancers but most predominately colon and endometrial cancer. Luckily there is testing that can hopefully catch these cancers before they become problimatic. Unfortunately this gene is dominant which means my girls have a 50/50 chance of passing it on to their children.
As a mother, wife and nurse there is nothing worse than not being able to fix things for your family. I am hopeful that there will be research that will help my family battle and beat this syndrome.
I have set up a team, Legs Against Lynch Syndrome to hopefully inrease public awaerness.
Any money helps! Hug your family as they are everything.
Below is some information from Fred Hutch
We are committing to ride Obliteride this August because we believe research is the fastest path to curing cancer and we also believe the team at Fred Hutch can get us there.
Sadly, half of all men and one third of all women in the U.S. will get cancer in their lifetime.
Fred Hutch is learning more about cancer prevention, diagnostics and treatment and Obliteride can help us get to cures faster.
More than 300 labs and projects are working hard to save the lives of people all over the world by conducting innovative, high-impact cancer research.
Please join us in this effort to put cancer in its place, behind us.
Ride with us, donate to our team, and tell others about Obliteride.
