28 year old had stroke due to Factor five disorder. Can you explain what it is?

I was advised today that my niece had a second stroke (she is 28 years of age with 2 kids) in the past 2 years and that she has been diagnosed with Factor Five and mntfh . I have found Factor five on the internet but not mntfh . What does this stand for and what is it? My sister sent me an e-mail and advised that she was positive for both as well and that I and my family should check it out.

This condition is due to a particularly malfunctioning clothing factor, for in some people, which is called factor Five (V) Leiden. This clotting factor has been seen to run in families and predisposes these patients to develop uncontrolled bleeding in the brain leading to stroke.
There are 12 main clotting fators in body involved in blood clotting, to prevent you from losing blood. However, this fcator V, called V Leiden is an abnormal type that instead causes one to blood.
It shall be valuable to run this test too.
Thanks and stay well.
