welcome to HCM!
I would like to tell you that cancer is such a common disease that it is no surprise that many families have at least a few members who have had cancer. Sometimes, certain types of cancer seem to run in some families,but only a small portion of all cancers are inherited.
If you are feeling that your wife is underweight ask her to increase her nutrition and hydration.feel relaxed.
hope this will help you!
take care!
