At a minimum, he should be able to pay for cobra (Health care) while on disability, although he will/may have to pay the full premium, the alternative is unthinkable, as I don't need to tell you the possible cost of a BMT and 1 year follow up care... Cobra is usually for at least 12 months, and sometimes 18 months, depending on state law...

Again I'm not sure if there are Grandchildren involved, but they will need every bit as much attention as he will...

May his sibling be a match, All the best...
