I assume Klippel Feil Syndrome (KFS) is genetic/hereditary because my sister and I both have it, and it's a rare disease. But if I'm wrong, please do correct me. Is KFS genetic-hereditary? My brothers don't have KFS, but are they carriers?

Additionally, does this mean that one of my parents had KFS or that both of them were carriers?

If one has KFS, what are the probabilities that they will pass it onto their children?

Is it a recessive gene/trait (not dominant)?

Basically, I just want to know what the likelihood of me passing on KFS to my children would be -- and if they don't get KFS -- they become carriers for it, correct?
