I have been told that I probably have Marfan's Syndrome and at this point it appears to be a mild form of the condition (aortic aneurysm and mitral valve prolapse). I am a 60 year old mother of 4 children. My question is that because this is a genetic condition, what are the chances that my children and grandchildren have inherited it and will they also inherit the mild form?
