23-year-old Mount Airy woman to spend lifetime with cancer

An incurable cancer has touched every part of 23-year-old Caitlyn Crawford’s life — her past, her present and her future. Crawford, a Mount Airy resident, knows that she’ll have to have chemotherapy, every other week, for the rest of her life. The genetic mutation that’s caused her tumors has also convinced her not to have children. She was 21 when she was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer, which had spread to her lungs and liver. She’s also developed stage one thyroid cancer. Her genetic condition, familial adenomatous polyposis, means she develops benign polyps in her colon that gradually become cancerous.
