it is a metastatic colon cancer i.e. stage 4 disease. it is difficult to assess about the status of ur brother from ur question. means does he eat well, what chemotherapy he is taking now a days, how many metastasis in liver etc. the average survival is considered as 6 months at this stage, but no body can exactly tell u how long.
