I can understand the situation that you and your uncle are going through but here the important thing is to solve the problem in the best possible way. My advice is that you should get help from your family members especially close relationships with your uncle, friends, relatives, and caregivers (counselors) because they all help your uncle to fight the prostate cancer. 

Hope the answer helps.

Thanks.
