Re: Leukemia

[QUOTE=rutizer;3598450]I was wondering if leukemia is hereditary. Both my husbands' grandfather (mom and dad sides) died of leukemia. I'm just afraid that my husband get it too.[/QUOTE]

Yes, leukemia is hereditary; however, just because something is hereditary doesn't mean that other people are going to get it; the odds are just increased. Numerous different cancers are hereditary in my family; I've had cancer three times now and am in the process of finding out if I have it again and I have an older brother and a younger sister and neither of them have any health problems at all, ever.

Don't stress about! It is one of those things that when and IF the time comes that you have to deal with it you deal with it then. Don't worry about it now or you'll stress yourself out. You just have to wait and see what road life leads you down and leave it in the hands of God!:)
