In our small town, we have seen links to heredity in OUR eyes.

One brother had colon cancer stage 4. His older brother put the testing off until his brother died. It was too late. His was already stage 4 when he FINALLY got tested. He lived almost 2 years thanks to mdAnderson.

My brother-in-law who was 50 was sick for about a week. He has colon cancer stage 4 when diagnosed. I finally got my 57 yr. old husband to go. He had a very large rectal polyp thankfully benign. Its time to be rechecked and he doesn't want to go. Somewhere down the line, his luck may run out.

Hang on. dede
