Our Mission

Mission Statement

Our mission is simple: to serve Australians living with Lynch syndrome.

  • We offer practical support and the latest information;
  • We educate and work with healthcare professionals
  • We tell the wider community about the challenges we face
  • We fight for more research, resources and recognition for everyone affected by Lynch syndrome

We are founded and governed by Lynch syndrome survivors and healthcare professionals who understand the condition and its challenges.
