What is the survival rate for lymphoma?

My neighbor was just diagnosed.

Lymphoma has a good survival rate if caught in the early stages. After the initial treatment of chemo, the patient usually only has to have maintenance cycles every 6 months to keep the cancer at bay. The healthier the patient when diagnosed, the healthier the patient will be throughout their treatment.
