Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Presence of blood disorders like ALL and AML, in your sister, puts you at risk of similar blood conditions.

Presence of fatigue and bruises in such a situation, should not be taken lightly.

You might consult your doctor who can get necessary blood tests and additional investigations, and if need refer you to a hematologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
