The Charmil Y. Davis Foundation is fighting to spread awareness of Lynch Syndrome, which is a genetic condition that has the potential to cause other cancers in people. People who have lynch syndrome have a higher risk of developing certain types of cancer in their bodies. Did you know that there are twelve types of cancers that lynch syndrome can cause? Such cancers include breast, stomach, uterine, ovarian, small bowel, pancreatic, prostate, liver, kidney, urinary tract and bile duct. Women and underserved communities have a higher risk of obtaining lynch syndrome; therefore, our foundation is fighting to support these women and underserved communities to spread awareness of this potentially fatal disease. Lynch Syndrome is highly genetic and it is an autosomal dominant condition, which means that if one parent has the syndrome then his or her child will have a 50 percent of getting Lynch Syndrome and run the risk of having colon cancer or the various cancers that Lynch Syndrome can cause. In fact, approximately 95% of people are not aware that they have Lynch syndrome, which is why genetic testing is required. Furthermore, doctors have also claimed that "3 out 100 colon cancers are caused by Lynch Syndrome". Our foundation, through our passion and support, will make people more aware of Lynch syndrome and make a huge difference in the cancer society. Our mission is not only to spread awareness but also to help people financially that struggle to obtain funds that treat lynch syndrome. We will be collaborating with 100 brilliant doctors, cancer organizations, hospitals, students, patients, Rutgers organizations and political affiliations to accommodate our mission. Our goal is to rise 5000 dollars for this amazing cause!
