Li-Fraumeni Syndrome is Worse Than Getting Hit By a Bus

Fannie’s recent post on the Living LFS blog reminded me of my own analogy. A member of our private support group posted a fun thread of “you know you’re an LFS mutant when…” and this was one of my answers:

When people say, “Life is short for everyone. I could get hit by a bus tomorrow.” and your response is, “Now imagine that bus has already hit you and your family members multiple times and it’s chasing you across town…. Forever.”

That’s what it’s like to live with Li-Fraumeni Syndrome.

You make the most of the times when you’ve ditched the bus for a while.
