Hemminga Family Cancer Study

Daan and Johanna Hemminga had a son and a daughter. Johanna had breast cancer but was cured. The daughter had (and died of) breast cancer.

The daughter's first daughter probably had breast cancer but died of something else. Her second daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003.

The son had four daughters. Two have developed breast cancer.

Daan had one sister. One of her granddaughters has breast cancer.

Deena is one of those found to have breast cancer. She has been invited by the University of Miami Medical School to participate in a study attempting to determine where there is any genetic basis for cancer.

If you are descended from a Hemminga and know of any cancer in the family, please let us know.
