Stephanie is 24-years-old and has an extensive past medical history. In 2012, she went to the ER with abdominal pain that they thought was appendicitis. However, she was diagnosed with biallelic mismatch repair mutation (Lynch syndrome) – a rare disorder that greatly increases the risk of developing one or more types of cancer. They also found that she had a ruptured left kidney and polyps that, when biopsied, were confirmed to be stage 1 adenocarcinoma of the colon. Since then, she has also battled brain tumors and ovarian cancer, been in and out of hospitals and outpatient clinics, had numerous surgeries, countless scans, chemotherapy, and radiation.
Her most recent MRI showed a new lesion in her brain and they will be starting treatment for that soon. She also lost her mom to cancer three years ago. Her dad is now a single father trying to keep his two kids healthy and safe.
