Has anyone ever heard of this happening and if so can you explain?  Started out as AML in Dec 08, remission then relapsed.  Each chemo treatment has been followed with infections and the latest is pneumonia.  A statement from one of the medical staff was that the leukemia may be in the lungs.  What?  Would anyone be able to explain that logic?

My brother died on 8/16/09 and in the late stage when he was put on hospice I realized that he had leukemia on the lungs. He needed to have radiation therapy on his lungs to get rid of the leukemia cells that got infiltrated into his lungs. My parents decided to put him on hospice and did not want him to go thru radiation and the doctors were only giving him a month to live.
