    Wife is 75 years old and has had two chemo treatments. I,her husband, am also 75 too. I care for her around the clock. Best wishes and I will pray for all cancer patients every day. Our physician indicated chemo was the way to go and not radiation. He is listed in the Philadelphia Magazine as a top doctor for this malady, which is a poll of his peers.

    Hi Buddyritz…..….It looks like someone you care about has been diagnosed with stage IV lymphoma. I was diagnosed stage IV, diffuse large b-cell over 3 years ago. Currently I am NED (no evidence of disease).

    There is a lot of help on this site from other partners/caregivers. Just ask, and I'm sure someone will respond. In the meantime, I wish your partner/spouse all the best, and do not give up hope.

    Feel free to reach out if you or partner/spouse care to.
