Team Lynch Syndrome (formerly Team Sandi) is the Lynch Syndrome Center's team for Dana-Farber's Jimmy Fund Walk, now in its tenth year. Since 2013, Team Lynch Syndrome has raised close to $200,000 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 to raise awareness of Lynch syndrome, including funding our annual LYNKED IN Lynch Syndrome Patient Conference.
Team Lynch Syndrome was founded to honor Sandi Braune, a patient of Lynch Syndrome Center founder, Dr. Sapna Syngal The team comprises Lynch syndrome previvors (patients who have not had cancer but have tested positive for a mutation in one of the mismatch repair 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.
I am participating in my fourth Jimmy Fund Walk with Team Lynch Syndrome. Thank you for considering donating to my fundraising page!
