Can you tell me anything that will help her she has taken care of him for so long and is trying to keep on top of things but is getting very worried as he's in a lot of pain and his stomach is very swollen and can't eat very much. He's on very strong pain meds.

Yes with those multiple cancers, there is very little hope for one to recover. So it is of concern for anyone. In cancer it is quite common to have difficulty in having foods and this worsens with progression. Give him supportive care as far as possible as that is what that can be done by anyone at this stage.
