Stage IV Lung Cancer 3 1/2 years fighting

My grandfather has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung cancer for 3 1/2years now. We recently went to the doctor and there are not more treament options. The doctors say becasue he is so weak from radiation the chemo will only make his quality of life worse. He has had extremely back reactions to chemo in the past. He has informed our family that he will no longer be recieving anymore treatments of any kind. His cancer has been in the right hemisphere of his brain, left and right nodes, tumors in both lungs and now the liver. Looking at all the stastics online and many people's post have weakened my hope for his length of life.
