Leukemia is NOT hereditary. Leukemias occur when there is a re-arrangement, deletion, addition or some other change in the DNA of the cells in the bone marrow [AML/CML] or thymus [ALL/CLL]. Although you can inherit a portion of the DNA that is more susceptible to fragmentation/change, this is not the same as inheriting leukemia.

What this means to you is that you should be more careful than people without your family's medical history about exposure to known carcinogens and take preventative measures about eating healthy and exercise.

Our child had AML and theabove is the information we were given by our child's HEM/ONCs. And so far, there is no scientific, medical/clinical evidence to the contrary.
