Jacqueline Rush, a bright and caring young woman carried the genetic mutation for Lynch Syndrome, a rare hereditary disorder that made her susceptible to colorectal cancer, which took her life in 2014. Since then, her mother, Joan Rush and father Allen, have campaigned to raise physician and public awareness of the condition present in one in 280 people in the U.S.  PNR members heard Joan’s heartfelt story at their May 18th meeting and how the Jacqueline Rush Lynch Syndrome Cancer Foundation is raising funds for research and educational efforts so the possibility of Lynch Syndrome among young patients is more often properly diagnosed.
