My father-in-law had a son. He grew up like a normal child till the age of around 10 to 12 years. Suddenly, he was diseased and he was not able to walk properly and after some days, he completely lost power in both the legs and permanently lost his ability to walk. Could you tell me what that disease is and will that get passed on to my children as heredity?

It is likely that he could be suffering from one of the types of muscular dystrophy. It is most of the time, X-chromosome linked.
Usually, the male children get affected and the females are carriers.
