Dear Mr. Shryock,

I am writing to you as Iím seeking information as my mother has been diagnosed with fallopian tube cancer, which is a rare form of ovarian cancer and may be genetic. Her mother (Joyce Lee Shryock) and aunts (Billie Corinne Shryock & Martha Belle Shryock) are deceased. The Shryock sisters lost their mother (Corinne) when they were very young, and their father (Charlie Shryock), I believe, was a jeweler. I recall in the late 1980ís going with my grandmother (Joyce Lee Shryock) to a family reunion and dinner at a restaurant. In fact, my family are in several pictures on your website from the June 1989 family reunion in Clarendon. I thought that I would inquire about the Shryock cancer family history as we are meeting with a geneticist next week. Thank you in advance for your time and any information that you may be able to provide.

Best Regards,

Kristen B. Hooper

Kristen, I'm sorry to hear about your mother's diagnosis. I remember Uncle Charlie from when I was a very little girl. I believe that he worked at my dad's jewelry store in Brinkley at one time. Unfortunately, I have no information that would be helpful to you concerning your mother's diagnosis. I do not know of anyone in the family having fallopian tube cancer. That is not to say that no one did. I just was never made aware of anyone having it. I do have 2 brothers who both died of cancer, but it was lung cancer. I do not know of anyone else in the family who has had any form of cancer. In fact, I was curious as to whether anyone in the Shryock family had ever had cancer, especially lung cancer, other than my brothers. If anyone has any information about that, I would like very much to know. Best of luck to your mother, Kristen.
