REGIONAL REPRESENTATIVES AND THE LSI BUDDY PROGRAM
Lynch Syndrome International is an all volunteer organization with NO person, within the organization, personally compensated for their good efforts.
The Directors of LSI are all Survivors, Previvors, Medical Professionals and those who care for us and who have a special knowledge and experience with Lynch syndrome.
The heart of LSI is within our global regions and within the regional representatives and dozens of LSI volunteers as they operate the grass roots public awareness programs, learn of the resources available in the area for those with Lynch syndrome and provide public awareness to members of the community and local support to those with Lynch syndrome. Our representatives, when available, do travel on a regional basis to conferences, exhibitions and public events and do speak locally on behalf of public awareness for Lynch syndrome.
Lynch Syndrome International volunteers come from all walks of life, come in all ages, all colors and some speak various different languages. exactly the same as the diverse populations in our communities as Lynch syndrome is not discriminatory. It doesn't care if you are black, brown, yellow, red or white, or male or female, or a specific religion or sexual preference. It prefers the young but will strike at any age...therefore, we have developed a network of Moms, Dads, students, caretakers and everyday people with Lynch syndrome or who are familiar with Lynch syndrome to be available to be there during time of need.
Only those who have had a personal experience with Lynch syndrome can truly understand the feelings individuals go through with the initial diagnosis of Lynch syndrome and/or the cancers of Lynch syndrome. Our mission is to be here for one another.
