The very first question I asked Ki-Won (older brother) was, “For my own health, are there any health conditions I should be aware of? Any disease or cancer run in the family?”
Ki-Won got back to me with an answer. One of the grandfathers and great-grandfathers died of liver cancer. One of the grandmothers died of “large intestine cancer”. I’m guessing Ki-Won meant colon cancer. My birth father has diabetes. I do not.
So, in my mind, it appears everything is manageable. Ki-Won said there was alcoholism, with the men, in the family. Thankfully, I don’t have any vices like that and it sounds like the other siblings and parents don’t either.
Appreciation to my father who told me about this
blog, this webpage is really amazing.
