I had a telephone appointment with Genetics at Kaiser this morning.  I wanted to ask all of my relatives in the cousin range if they have had some sort of cancer.  Father and mother’s side for me – so if you’ve had some cancer, please let me know and I can let the genetics people know.

I have a rare cancer and they are interested in it being hereditary – they don’t know of course, but they are looking into it.  I have an endocrine endometrial carcinoma cancer.  It usually presents in the lung, but in mine, it was in the uterus.

I gave them the run down on my Mom’s sisters and brothers, but I didn’t know if any cousins had cancer.  Let me know – maybe we can help out future generations.  All confidential – send to jan.lopez@gmail.com

Thanks!
