Im new to this site and hoping to connect with anyone who knows someone with MEN2A?
My 12 year old daughter is awaiting test results next week as to whether she has the gene.
Can anyone shed any light on it?
Anything is appreciated

Thanks so much for the reply and information, I am very keen to learn more about MEN2A and to talk to others that have people they know affected by it.
Best case is our daughter does not carry the gene.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
