    Thank you for shedding light on this disease! I pray that you and your sister do not have this disease... I was tested over the summer because it sadly runs in my family. Unfortunately I have Lynch Syndrome, but I am trying to remain positive and know that the screenings will help ease my mind!

    I just got my genetics test results today and I have Lynch Syndrome. My dad had colon cancer and he was tested also and he has Lynch Syndrome. My brother also tested but he did not get it.
