Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I think it is but lukemia is a different kind of cancer. I know female cancers like breast and cervical tend to run in families. Mine has both, poor me and my girls. I don't really know about lukemia though. Google is great though, that's how I find out most of what I'm wondering. Good luck and I hope your sis stays healthy. :)
