Familial Cancer Journal FAP Edition

Imagine our surprise to find a Medical Journal all about FAP which even as patients John and myself found contained some really valuable and more importantly, understandable information. Our thanks go to Janice Koistinen of Warwick University and the editor for making two copies available to us. Of course we are not able to provide quotes from them but the link above and details below give an indication of the contents.

We are sure it will raise some eyebrows but hopefully eventually such articles will lead to a better understanding of FAP among clinicians to the benefit of all patients with FAP.
