AMY. STAGE 1 COLON CANCER/FAP. DIAGNOSED AT 23. MARYLAND.
SURVIVORS & ME
I just spent a wonderful couple of hours connecting with fellow Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) patient Amy. She was diagnosed with stage 1 colon cancer via FAP at age 23. She’s the latest addition to 500UNDER50BEFORE50. Like my dad, Amy was the first in her family to be diagnosed with FAP. Colon cancer, not just your grandfather’s disease. Know your family history, your body and make sure your doctor does too. Got a colon? You’re at risk.
