Are there any `children` of Vietnam Veterans out there who have been diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma?!?!? i know that the pamphlets that are sent out each month say only spina bifida for a possible side effect in children, but if the vets can get NHL, why cant it be passed through their blood into their children? my dad is a vietnam vet and i had NHL, so i was just wondering if there are anymore out there like me.... thanks!!! ~jody

Hello Jody,

You may want to post your question on the Military Cancer Survivors discussion board to see if perhaps somewhere there someone has had a similar experience.

Take care and be well,
