Colon Cancer Alliance for Research and Education for Lynch Syndrome

Our Mission

Educate the public and healthcare professionals about

Lynch Syndrome and to help fund research for a cure for

this disease.

What is Lynch Syndrome?

Lynch Syndrome is a hereditary disorder that affects up

to 800,000 people in the United States. It increases the

risk of colon, uterine, ovarian, and other cancers. These

cancers often occur at a young age.

Are you at risk?

If multiple family members have cancer and at least one

person is younger than the age of 50, please learn more

about Lynch Syndrome.
