In brief: Get this straight

Non-hodgkin's lymphoma is going to kill the patient unless chemotherapy cures or effectively manages it.
Chlorambucil is serious medication and the patient has had the risks and like benefits explained. It is also a very appropriate medication for many of the lymphomas. When i was a kid, these people simply died as there was no effective rx. I'm glad we have something nowadays.
