Bestselling author Ami McKay discusses her new book, Daughter of Family G: A Memoir of Cancer Genes, Love and Fate, with award-winning Canadian science journalist, Alanna Mitchell.

McKay weaves together family history, genetic discovery, and scenes from her life to tell the true-science story of her own family’s unsettling legacy of hereditary cancer.

In this memoir, McKay explores the challenges that come from carrying a mutation that not only killed many people she loved, but that threatens her own life.
