has anyone else been a “sporadic” ALS case, but then learn that they have the C9 gene mutation? This just happened to my husband who is only 52.
There is no history of ALS known in my husbands family and they are a large family. Grandparents living into their 80s. 2 cases of Dementia but both in their 80s.
Does this mean that my 4 kids could also inherit the C9 mutation? And what would be their risk of getting ALS?
this is what keeps me up at night!
we just found this out and don’t see the geneticist for a month!
my kids are between 18 and 22.
