Jane MacKenzie wrote -My Sister-in-Law Dari died of gastric cancer in 2010 at the age of 43.
My Husband Bob, Mother-in-Law Carol, and Sister-in-Law Debi, all tested positive for the CDH1 mutation which causes HDGC. They all had their stomachs removed this past March.
All three of them were diagnosed with gastric cancer.
My 20 year old Daughter, Jessica, received the genetic test results this past June. She inherited the mutation.
This morning our world collapsed when she received the call that she has gastric cancer. She is planning to have her gastrectomy within the next few weeks. In addition, it is necessary for her to have in-vito fertilization so she does not pass this mutation to her children.
My 15 year old son Matthew is too young to be tested.
Please help me spread awareness to this unknown and devastating disease!
