- Lost a loved one
long story short. my grandfathers side of the family has familial als. My grandfathers brother got the disease and died within two years. there mother had als and there grandmother also had als. although my grandfather did not get als. neither did his other 3 sisters or other brother get the disease. None of there many children have got the disease yet. I am assuming that I have a big chance of getting the disease considering my grandfather probably has the gene as well and has passed it on to me. What are my chances 50/50 ?
