It's not saving his life because his life can't be saved. It is most certainly making him increasingly sicker. If that isn't the case then it is one hell of a coincidence that he starts feeling better in the lull between different series of treatments.

It may be increasing the length of his life but it can't be by much. The shit is still growing like hell and spreading everywhere.

The question is, for terminal patients, is it worth it to get a few extra days maybe and be throwing up the whole time.

Now I said 'it SEEMS like he is dying of'. An emotional statement where dying means deathly sick. I hope you didn't read that as the chemo is killing him not the cancer but it SEEMS like you did.
