Be prepared: Advancing lymphoma that is not responsive to treatment usually means a relatively short life span remains, so it is best to prepare and enjoy the present with your loved one. Occasionally, clinical trials of newer drugs may be available for people who have failed conventional treatments, but these are "last ditch" attempts and may not increase survival much, but do help us to learn for future pts.
