My dad was diagnosed with Kearns-Sayre Syndrome in the 1980's. He copes well and is very independent. He went through genetic counseling while I was child and was told this mother was the carrier and once it hit a male the gene stopped. This was in the 80's. I am now married with 3 children of my own and I often wonder if this information is true. Is there any way that I could be a carrier?
