Georgia Hurst

Georgia Hurst is a patient advocate for those with Lynch syndrome. She has the MLH1 mutation and fortunately has never had any cancer. She is the co-creator of #GenCSM (Genetic Cancer Social Media) on Twitter, and her advocacy work has afforded her opportunities to write for medical journals, various websites and genetic testing companies, as well as collaborate as a stakeholder for the National Academy of Sciences: Genomics and Population Health Collaborative. Her loves include: her son, her dog, books, photography, long walks in the woods, and seeking out fungi after the rain. Her motto is: "There is enough misery in the world – there’s no need to contribute to it.”

In honor of Ovarian Cancer Month, it is only appropriate for me to discuss ovarian cancer. "Ovarian cancer" are two of the scariest words in any language for a woman to hear screening for it at this time is poor and more often than not, by the time it is detected it is too late.

Of the possible 1,000,000 Lynch syndrome carriers in the USA alone, it is estimated that only about 5 percent have been tested.

There are about one million people in the United States with Lynch syndrome and yet, it is estimated that only 5 percent of this particular population is aware of the fact they hold one of the five Lynch syndrome genes.

Lynch syndrome is an inherited cancer susceptibility syndrome caused by mutations in one of five DNA mismatch repair (MMR) genes.
