The FAP Gene Support Group received an interesting request from Daniel in Hawaii to help him raise awareness and offer help to others diagnosed with Attenuated FAP. Daniel has been diagnosed with Attenuated FAP which is a variant of FAP characterized by fewer colorectal polyps (usually 10-100) later age of onset of polyps (mean age of polyp diagnosis, 44 years) and cancer (mean age, 56 years).

On his pages he has provided articles from MidWeek Honolulu which we thank them for giving permission to include the article. www.midweek.com.

Also Daniel has written a recap of the Hawaii Relay for Life when after taking part he was he was a guest speaker in the evening. Actually the only guest speaker!
