    Steve Mayberry (1959-2010) lost his battle to colon cancer due to lack of awareness of Lynch Syndrome. Lynch Syndrome was only discovered in 1985. As a family, we found the medical community to be unaware of the Syndrome.  Had Steve or his doctors known, I believe he would have had screenings annually.  We raise awareness of groundbreaking cancer research by hosting cook off events because barbecue competition was Steve’s favorite pastime.
