Since Lynch syndrome is hereditary, she worries it may have been passed to one of her sons.
"One of the brothers tested and was negative, and the other two haven't been tested," Sonia says. "The geneticist said she recommends waiting until my sons are adults. Our family has had quite a bit of colon cancer, but no one in their 20s. I am OK waiting until they are adults to get their results."
Meanwhile, Sonia sees her oncologist every three months, and right now, "everything is looking good," she says. "I have no symptoms, either." She’s grateful for her good health and for the wonderful care she received.
