My Father’s Daughter by Lindy Bruzzone

One by one, members of Lindy Bruzzone’s family died of cancer. Why it occurred was a medical mystery; it was just the way Lindy’s family lived and the way they died: waiting for “someday” when it would strike.
My Father’s Daughter: A Story of Survival, Life, and Lynch Syndrome Hereditary Cancer is the memoir of Lindy and her family, caught in crisis, as they lived through insurmountable challenges from the 1600s to today. Sharing the gritty details of generations confronting life’s challenges of survival from the founding and pioneering of America to the present time, Lindy details her family history of growing up in a family with hereditary cancer in Carson City, Nevada, and her efforts to defy and avoid the thought of  “the family cancer” by living as a risk taker. As she writes, “We felt a fervent desire to live for today because ‘someday’ may not be there for us. We learned young that there are as many ways to live as there are to die.”
My Father’s Daughter details her story of becoming one of the first women to work in California’s notorious high-security prisons, of her experiences pounding the dangerous inner-city streets as a parole agent and keeping California’s most violent parolees on a tether, and spending years investigating violent crimes. When “someday” arrives, Lindy struggles with how to survive that which she fears most—cancer.  With her passionate medical team, she embarks upon a genetic journey.
Bruzzone’s memoir chronicles her family’s generational struggles, from the early 1600s, when they arrived to found and pioneer a new country, to living with the fear of hereditary cancer. It details the tragic time in American history of the eugenics era and the mandatory sterilization of those with suspected hereditary conditions, and how it affected her family. She delves into her ancestral past to learn, not only how they died, but how they survived insurmountable challenges of living and how those stories inspired her own survival and brought immense hope. At last, she and her medical team identify the defective gene responsible for the cancer deaths in her family, and family members learn to live with Lynch syndrome.
Bruzzone’s memoir is a generational story of survival and life in America that offers inspiration and insight into living with difficult life challenges, including that of the hereditary cancer Lynch syndrome.
