    I would say a year of chemo. You don't have the burden of fighting for your life by just taking a couple years off the bike.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Chemo, by a long long way, is worse.

    I quit racing in 2001 because my mother-in-law was diagnosed with cancer and my wife had to stop working.

    Fast forward 4 years to 2005.

    Situation has stabilized enough that i can get back to training and racing. So I got back on the bike, lost 50 lbs.

    My mother-in-law is still getting chemo treatments and getting worse.

    My Brother died from Leukemia.

    I would rather not ride for 10 years than go through one month of Chemo.
