Team Lynch Syndrome Over The Years
WHY WE'RE FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER
Team Lynch Syndrome (formerly Team Sandi) is the Lynch Syndrome Center's team for Dana-Farber's Jimmy Fund Walk, now in its ninth year. Since 2013, Team Lynch Syndrome has raised over $180,000 for Lynch syndrome research at Dana-Farber. One hundred percent of the proceeds raised by our team directly support Lynch syndrome research and national education efforts for Lynch syndrome awareness, including funding our annual LYNKED IN Patient Conference.
Team Lynch Syndrome was founded to honor Sandi Braune, a patient of Lynch Syndrome Center Founder, Dr. Sapna Syngal, who passed away from colon cancer in 2003 shortly after discovering she had Lynch syndrome. The team comprises Lynch syndrome previvors (patients who have not had cancer but have tested positive for a mutation in one of the genes that cause Lynch syndrome), Lynch syndrome cancer survivors, non-carrier relatives, friends, and Dana-Farber staff, and is a great way to connect with other individuals with Lynch syndrome.
Thank you for supporting Team Lynch Syndrome in the Jimmy Fund Walk!
