Again, I am not a medical professional and am not qualified to give medical advice. I'm an electrical engineer in the middle of my career who has a found that a beautiful young family member has MEN1. I want to help, but don't have any medical training. I wish I could quit my job, go back to college, get a degree in medicine or microbiology or genetics or pharmacology, and then be a part of a research team that makes a great, new advancement in MEN1 treatment: a better means of early detection; an improved treatment; even a cure; Yes, a cure for a genetic condition... a "Yes, BUT...":
- "Yes, MEN1 is a genetic condition affecting every cell of the body, BUT we have found a way to contain its effects..."
- "Yes, MEN1 tends to produce multiple tumors, BUT we have found a treatment that arrests their growth..."
- "Yes, loss of ability to produce menin disrupts multiple cellular mechanisms, BUT we have found another way to control cell proliferation in targeted tissues..."
Finally, I ask for your prayers for my loved one, and I promise in turn to pray for you and your loved ones, especially those who may have MEN1.
Do you or a loved one have MEN1? Do you have questions about MEN1?
