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. :)
