They still don't know if MS is hereditary or not. Auto-immune diseases are, by observation, thought to run in families, but there is no scientific evidence that proves that either.
So the short answer is that the jury is out on that question! The important part is finding help for your daughter. Ask the doctors office to be put on the cancellation list, so you'll be called if someone cancels. You might even call every couple of weeks to check their schedule.
