My daughter was recently diagnosed with a brain tumour, her 2nd cancer! She had bone cancer when she was 9 years old. After pushing for gene testing recently we was told she was positive for LFS. If we had known 5 years ago about LFS and offered gene testing, who knows it may have been a different story. Sadly, we have been told currently there is no screening in place apart from breast screening from the age of 20? She got her first cancer at 9 and is now 15... What chance does she have.. Please regular screening for adults and children. Surely?

All children who develop cancer should be routinely screened for this disease. Genetic screening of this kind is cheap and easy these days and would make a huge difference to so many families who would be able to spend much more time with their precious children not to mention the money and heartache saved through early detection. There is NO reason in my opinion not to introduce routine screening. I am signing because had my friends and their team known what was likely to happen their care would have been much improved and their second tragic experience of cancer would have been managed in a completely different way.

Screening would provide a sense of reassurance to families to pick up early on a future cancer.
