FAP/Gardner syndrome is about genetics and disease. This group helps us to understand that genetics does not always mean inherited, and you don't have to be so scared and alone. We need to educate as many people as possible. We need to educate ourselves and our families. We need to educate insurance companies. We need to educate pediatricians, dentists, dermatologists, interns and gastroenterologists. Treatment for FAP/GS is not only with surgery and drugs, but with emotions. We need to know the plan of attack. We need to know the possibilities and probabilities so that we can be armed with the knowledge to go for multiple opinions when necessary ... so we can mix our own combination of emotion and fact to decide yes or no to a particular drug or surgery ... so we can decide whether or not to have children. ---- Steve
