Wendy Lewis

Research Advocate

Diagnosed at age 42, Wendy is a stage III rectal cancer survivor who inherited more than dark hair and fair skin from her late father….she also inherited a diagnosis of Lynch Syndrome.  

Fight CRC is an organization with a goal of change and inclusion that has made a difference. In my own community, Fight CRC has taught me about prevention and barriers to screening.  

As a Research Advocate, the value of physicians you may not see is immense.  The simple tour of a lab will open your eyes to the massive amount of work going on behind the scenes.

With fellow advocates, a trip was made to the Promega lab in Madison, WI. We had the opportunity to participate in lab activities with scientists and learn about immunotherapy and hereditary cancer risk and bioluminescence.
