Hi,
6 months back we came to know that my husband is suffering from chronic leukemia, and he's getting diagnosed for the same at present. We also were told that it is in the very initial stages, and will not have any impact on his current life and that he can have a normal life as any other normal person.
We have a 15-month old daughter and want to plan for another one. Is there any chances that our kids get affected with the same? Will there be any such issue present with the new-born if we have any? Please help us on this.

I'm sorry to hear that your husband has been diagnosed with this disease. As for whether this is hereditary or not, some forms of leukemia are, but it's hard to say whether the form that your husband has is hereditary or not--based on the form that it is, it is not something that we can easily say. But a lot of cancers are hereditary so it is possible that it can be passed down. Your children are fortunate in that they will know about this instead of finding out the hard way, so that is an advantage. Does anyone know about this affecting a newborn?
