    As a CDH1 mutation carrier, and someone who had a prophylactic total stomach removal, as well as has lost too many people to stomach cancer, I am so thankful for Dr. Perry Guilford’s past research and this latest quest. He has done so much for all of us who carry this deadly genetic mutation.

    I will be following this research for stomach cancer closely as I am waiting for the results of my genetic testing for the CDH1 gene.

      Best of luck. Waiting for the results is challenging. I remember waiting for our results and it was extremely difficult. I remember feeling helpless.Please continue to reach out to us so we can help you as you learn more about the genetic mutation. Hoping for good results. Please keep us posted.
