CDH1 in the news

Fellow CDH1 gene mutation carrier, Kate, talks about CDH1 and her choice to under go a total gastrectomy.  Her story was featured on her local news station.    I’ve also included a link to her blog under the ‘interesting reads’ tab.  The difference between her surgery and mine is that I won’t be having keyhole (laproscopic) surgery due to recommendations from the oncologists. Instead I will be having open surgery. Thanks Kate for letting me post this.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing! Really means a lot and I’ve been contacted by a number of other CDH1 gene carriers which makes the story well and truly worthwhile
