Summer’s Complaint

My family's courageous, century-long struggle with a rare genetic cancer syndrome

Summer’s Complaint: My family’s courageous, century-long struggle with a rare genetic cancer syndrome by Laura Kieger – “I thought there might be something wrong with your mother’s family.” Those words, spoken by a grandmother to her eleven-year-old granddaughter, sparked a search for answers to a mystery spanning five generations.

Familial adenomatous polyposis is a rare, genetic cancer predisposition syndrome caused by a deletion mutation in the APC gene on chromosome 5. By the age of fifty, nearly 99 percent of untreated patients will have developed cancer.

This is the dark shadow that has lingered over one Midwestern family since at least 1911, when Mary Regan Baker was seen at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota for symptoms of a disorder that would become commonplace in her descendants.

Through deeply touching personal stories of love, heartbreak, and hope, Summer’s Complaint explores the meaning of family and how tragic loss leads to the remaking of life in the face of a rare genetic mutation.
