Seeking advice

My brother was recently diagnosed with stage 1 pancreatic cancer. He had a stint placed in his bile duct to relieve the severe itching and 2 rounds of chemotherapy. He is scheduled for 2 more rounds then the Whipple procedure. He tolerated the chemo well but just told me wants to stop chemo and treat his cancer with diet. I totally don't agree. He has indicated if the diet does not work he can just pick the chemo back up without detimental consequences. Does anyone have experience in advising individuals with this school of thought? I desperate to change his mind...
