So far my husband who passed away June 30th is the only one in his family...I have a friend who has two siblings with PC and one who has breast cancer. Johns Hopkins does a study on hereditary PC. I filled it out. They want to know the life/death history of all PC patient's relatives and the smoking/drinking/diabetic history of all family members including children and mates as well as their health history and habits. My husband never smoked, drank or had ill health. He had perfect blood pressure and cholesterol and was strong and hard working. His only health problem was asthma since childhood. It came as such a shock. They thought he had his PC two years before stage IV diagnosis. He lived 7 months. Living healthy is so important in our toxic world. Good health to you.
