I am looking for information on lynch disease, an inheritable

I am looking for information on lynch disease, an inheritable gene for colon cancer. My son was just diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and is awaiting results of a recent biopsy. My wife who is decease had multiple myeloma but after a ten year battle with that was diagnosed with colon cancer and that was what finally ended her life. My daughter who is 9 years younger than her brother just had a colonoscopy and it was clear except for one non cancerous looking polypup. Where is the best source for info on the lynch disease gene and are there any trials currently under way that we should be checking on. His disease has matastisized to his liver and and his lungs. He start chemo on Monday morning.

How does Cadasil work. I know it is in my husband s side of the family and it transfer from the mother, to the son, to the daughter. My husband died at the age of 53 from problems with his brain vessels turning very brittle at the age of 45 and he started having strokes and went from 220lbs 6 1 to 110 when he died. He was never diagnose because we did not have enough information about the family history at the time and he was the oldest. But since then his brother died last year at the age of 60 and his oldest daughter age 39 now the disease. What I want to know is we have one son and three granddaughters. Is there a chance that my granddaughter could get this disease? I have checked and it cost over $2,000 for a blood test and their is no cure and my son told me not to worry. But what I went through with my husband and brother-in-law is makes me nervous. Thanks
