DA & Liz Wallach

When Liz's mother received simultaneous colorectal and endometrial cancer diagnoses in 2013, it was a total surprise to the family, and a double-whammy when Liz then discovered that these cancers were genetically-driven and that she too bore a Lynch mutation. D.A. and Liz are inspired by AliveAndKickn's work to bring together the community of Lynch patients, survivors and previvors alike, and know that as a group, we have the power to advance real cures and next generation diagnostics that will improve the quality of our lives.
