Lynch syndrome is an inherited genetic condition associated with a significantly increased risk for certain cancers. There are many preventative screenings and specialists these individuals need to see, and the Lynch Syndrome Center provides personalized care and support—we act as a home base, taking the burden off of our patients by coordinating all their care needs.
The funds raised by Team Lynch Syndrome directly support our annual patient conference, LYNKED IN. Our conference is a one-day educational conference for those with Lynch syndrome, their families, and their caregivers. The conference provides guidelines and recommendations for cancer screening and prevention, the latest advances in treatment, and the opportunity to connect with other people who have Lynch syndrome. We continue to be able to have this conference free of charge due to the Jimmy Fund Walk.
Thank you for supporting Team Lynch Syndrome and my Jimmy Fund Walk fundraising efforts!
