My husband, my mom, my dad, and I sit around a round table at the hospital waiting for the genetic counsellor to join us. My husband is playing with a peg game in the room while my mom, dad and I discuss where to eat lunch that day after the appointment. It’s 11am. The genetic counsellor joins us at the table.
‘We received the results from your blood test and unfortunately, you tested positive for the CDH1 gene mutation’.
On December 5th, 2013 I had a solid 5 year plan. On December 6th, everything changed. Missing Cytosine…frameshift mutation…risk of hereditary diffuse gastric cancer.
This is my blog and my story about living with the CDH1 gene mutation
