Dr. Patrick Lynch grew up in a Lynch syndrome family…not one afflicted with Lynch syndrome but in one that was passionately dedicated toward research and treatment of those with Lynch syndrome.
As the son of Dr. Henry Lynch, he was exposed to the long hours of research his father performed, trying to solve the mysteries of inherited cancer. The family made great sacrifices on our behalf.
Following graduation from high school, the very last thing Dr. Patrick Lynch wished to do was to follow in the footsteps of his parents, Henry and Jane Lynch, and enter into the medical field. He knew how demanding it could be.
