The Genetics Risk Assessment Program (RAP) Rap:
Met with the team in clinical genetics
Identified the genes using nothing but phonetics
Ask me to name them and it will be pathetic | you’ll regret it | don’t go there just forget it.
There’s no silver-bullet story, yo
We’ll tell you ’bout the glory, tho’
No mystery in the history | no family-tree story | not to worry
Not passed down through the generations
Gotta find the configurations
Of the gene mutations | with the formation | for annihilation
Or in less artistic language, we received the results of Sherri’s genetic profile this week, and they were relatively inconclusive. There were no gene mutations identified that have any known correlation with cancer. This is good in that there is no indication that family members might share a predisposition to the cancers that Sherri has contracted. On the other hand, it doesn’t give us any additional actionable information to work with.
Still pending is additional profiling of the tumor cells for useful genetic information, but this is a separate process.
Meanwhile, we are back at FCCC for cocktails.
