my husband 68 was diagnosed 3 yrs ago with non hodgkins low grade lymphoma stage 4. He had two chemo treatments the first was standard chemo. the 2nd time his cancer came back the dr. put him on chemo and rotuxin. He has been in remission for over 1yr 1/2 i think. He visits the dr. every 4 months to check for reacurrance. The dr. told me his survival prognosis is 3-5 yrs. I'm looking for a longer survival or a cure for his disease as we are getting closer to that date. He now has Rhenmatoid artheritis in is shoulder and his knee which prevents him from lifting weights. He only swims now. We live is SD. Who speciaizes in this type of cancer? and who can help besides his oncologist which only gives him the treatment and a poor prognosis.
