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.

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.
