In 2001, long before the advent of at-home DNA kits, Ami McKay tested positive for Lynch Syndrome, a genetic mutation responsible for the cancer that plagued her family for generations. Ever since, the bestselling novelist of The Birth House and The Witches of New York has been living “in an unsettling state between wellness and cancer.” With questions from award winning health and medicine journalist Christina Frangou, McKay will discuss her just released memoir, Daughter of Family G., and how best to live with the hand you’re dealt with.
