    Can regular close contact of breasts with mobile phone (placed in bra) cause Aplastic anemia?

My mother always placed her cell phone in her bra even when home until bedtime. She did this 10 years or more. She suddenly got sick and passed after being diagnosed with aplastic anemia. She was actually my fathers caretaker and was on vacation when she got really bad and only lived 2 more months.
Could the phone cause this bone marrow failure?

till date there is no evidence to suggest that cell phone exposure can cause bone marrow failure. some anecdotal reports say that brain cancer incidence is increased with cell phone exposure but there is no strong cause and effect relationship.no other cancers are at increased risk. No evidence for aplastic anaemia so far.
