As per the star he is currently on chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery, which means he is either in Stage 3 or 4 of Stomach cancer.

As per the NCBI research on the Survival of metastatic gastric cancer, Patients in the age group 55 to 64 can survive anywhere around 3 months to 6 months after diagnosis if not treated. Patients who got any treatment had significantly improved survival. The median survival time after a Gastrectomy or local surgery was 8 months. Similarly, those who had radiation treatment had a higher chance of survival.
