Do nutritional supplements for dog cancer work?

I'm not looking for a cure, but some sort of immune system support seems nice. Unfortunately, I am a believer in evidence-based medicine and not a fan of holistic veterinary medicine (especially considering that so many of these alternative medicine vets want to sell me some TOTALLY ESSENTIAL product that is probably crap).
Any benefit to using lysine? Fish oil? I don't want to skimp on something that could help my dog, but I don't want to spend a lot of money on snake oil that does nothing. I'd honestly rather spend a lot of money on treats and other things that make my 77-pound baby
In short: Did/does your dog have cancer? Did you give your dog nutritional supplements? Do you think that made any difference?
