My dad was diagnosed with ALL in December 2003, he's 61. Part of his treatment was to have radiation and chemo to his brain which he did. Now he's in the hospital suffering from damage done to his brain from the treatment. He is fighting but we don't know what the outcome is going to be. I have not been able to find much information about this and would love to hear from anyone who has experienced it or may have any info. This has been devestating to me and my family and we would appreciate any info. Thank you! Love and prayers, Renee
