My uncle who is fighting cancer

My Uncle, who Lives in Burnville PA, right outside Redding PA. He has been with the United States Army for years, and he continued working with the Army after he retired. Since retirement, he went to Afghanistan, and after three years, he was sent home due to having cancer. He is still in treatment for the cancer, though chemo and radiation is no longer doing much to help him survive, his red blood cell count is low, and his doctor is skeptical as to how long he has to live. The doctors are giving him a few weeks at best.
