    I don't know the particulars, but it is indeed a known genetic propensity to cancer. I've seen it mentioned by women on other discussion boards in connection with all the organs you mention that she's had affected by cancer.

    It's a mixed bag to know these things sometimes, but it's worth investigating even if she (or they) decide not to be tested.

    I hope that she too can continue to get the care she needs to be healthy.
