My brother has Melanoma Cancer Stage 4, how long does he have?

My brother was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with Stage 4 melanoma cancer. He is a liver transplant recipient from 6 years ago. He has tumors in his bones, lungs and on his liver. His liver is starting to shut down. He's jaundice, fluid in his legs and lungs. He w,as real nauseated yesterday and today. I am in NY and my sister is in Ohio. He lives in Mississippi and we don't know whether we need to go down there now.  Does he have a month or more? We want to spend quality time with him before it starts getting real bad. Then we will be there at his side until he's in peace. Can someone give me an idea of how long he has? No one has ever died in our family from cancer.

Thanks everyone. God bless.
