Hello, My name is Kimberly Kukich. I started writing professionally 2 years ago. I was diagnosis with a very rare genetic cancer syndrome called FAP. The disease produces hundreds of polyps in your colon and rectum. In females it will also produce cysts and fibroids. After getting sick with this terrible disease I saw the need to write about colon health and other colon issues. I was 44 years old having to have my colon, rectum and female parts removed to try to save my life. Most people at my age don't make it. This disease changed my career direction . I am writing about depression and illness in your 40's now. I work with the American Cancer Society.
