Fighting Constitutional Mismatch Repair Deficiency (CMMRD) Together
What is Constitutional Mismatch Repair Deficiency (CMMRD)?
What It Is
Constitutional Mismatch Repair Deficiency (CMMRD) is a hereditary cancer predisposition syndrome.
What It Does
When our genes are altered or are abnormal they make it difficult for the cells in our body to repair themselves. When our cells are damaged they are more likely to result in cancer.
What To Look For
In addition to treatment for cancer, children with CMMRD have to undergo continued surveillance. Scans and GI scopes are done every 3-6 months.
We Are The Krishnans
