In brief: Very likely.
There are many kinds of leukemia.
Some not as severe or devastating as others. Depending on the type and severity of the leukemia, one may have as much chance with a pulmonary embolus as any other normal person. It is a serious illness but if recognized and treated, can be a good outcome.
