My dog has lymphoma (cancer) should we give him prednisone or chemotherapy?

So my 11 year old dog has been diagnosed with lymphoma and has only 4-7 weeks left to live and we have to make a decision of what to do very soon. The prednisone would help with the swelling but he would only live for about 1-2 months.. the vet says that with the chemotherapy, he could live up to a year. however, i'm aware that during the last few months the chemo makes the dog very, very ill. quality of life or quantity of life? i'm not sure what to do , your suggestions/stories would be greatly appreciated!
