In brief: MFH

Malignant fibrous histiocytoma is an umbrella term used to describe a range of more specific sarcomas.
Although many of these tumors have unique cytogenetic profiles, they are largely not hereditary.

I'd go farther. There are a few hereditary diseases that place on at increased risk for sarcomas and the family history reveals these; otherwise, the answer is simply "No". Good luck with treatment and recovery.
