Unhappy Dealing With An Illness in the Family

Hi, I'm new here and I hope I can get some advice. My brother is seriously ill....he has diabetes, bone marrow disease and just recently cracked a vertebrae in his back from lifting something too heavy. He's been on chemo for the bone marrow disease and it has weakened him considerably. In addition, he's down to 140 lbs. (he's 6' tall). The problem is he doesn't want help. He's isolating himself from his family and I'm afraid for him. He won't talk too much about it and I can just imagine how horrible his life is now. He's always been so strong and active and now he's practically an invalid. What do I do? The family is suffering, too, but he just doesn't want us around.
