My brother has tongue cancer and lung cancer

Hi everyone,   My beautiful brother had tongue cancer last year and after gruelling surgery and radiotherapy was recovering when they discovered he had 6 tumours in his lungs.  After two months of wondering what it is it is now confirmed (after surgery to remove one tumour) as squamous cell carcinoma. Today he was told that he has 6 months to live (without chemo) or 18 months with chemo. i am so distraught and any advice re this situation I would be most grateful.  To say I am finding it hard to cope is an understatement.   thanks Donna
