Lynch Syndrome

After hearing about and reading bits and pieces about Lynch Syndrome, Mike found a website that helps to explain it more clearly.  While we don't know for a fact this is why Mike got colon cancer, it does look likely based on the previous test results.  One interesting fact about Lynch is that an estimated 600,000 people in the US have it, but only 5% know it.

Mike gave the lab three more vials of blood this morning to send to Mayo.  The testing done now should confirm if Mike has Lynch Syndrome.  So, another 2-4 weeks of waiting and wondering and continuing to live our lives.
