    NHL - beginning chemo tomorrow

    My wife has been diagnosed with NHL, large cell, B cell. It has been found in her lymph system and bones. Pet scan found no organs effected. The doctors tell us she has a good chance of a cure. She is concerned the docs are giving her false hope. She begins chemo tomorrow on what they are referring to as a six to eight cycle treatment. One cycle every three weeks. Does anyone out there have experience with this? And stories of successful treatment?
