A personal journey through genetic testing

I love a good genetic mystery because, well, I am one.
There's the miracle of my 100-year-old grandmother, whose heart continues pumping on, even if her memory is not. Then there's my father and his history of heart disease, my mother who died of the supposedly sporadic version of the neurodegenerative illness Creutzfeld-Jakob Disease, a blood grandfather who I met only once and another grandfather who died of a heart attack when my mother was 4.
