Would you marry someone who has had cancer, even though there is a 50/50 chance the the baby could have cancer? I really do want kids when I'm married?

Honestly? I don't know. My best friend was diagnosed with leukemia when we were in 9th grade, and even though he is in remission today, it is not something I think I would want to go through twice.
I know that I shouldn't even be trying to make that remotely about myself, because I know how I felt is nothing compared to what they went through, but the fact is that it was awful to spend 5 years wondering if my 14 year old friend was going to live. I don't know if I could handle that with someone I was romantically involved with.2

if I loved the person then yes. besides that's not really how cancer works - it's probably not actually a 50/50 chance of your kids having cancer, it's probably a lower chance than that. Cancer isn't usually passed down directly like that, but it does depend on how you carry it in your genes I suppose.1
