Esophageal Cancer

A family member has stage four esophageal cancer that has begun to spread with a tiny spot (PET Scan)to the spine, adrenal glands, and one lymph node. The cancer is located near the stomoch, not the upper region of the esophagus.  We are aware that this is terminal and that no one can actually say what life expentancy is.  He is a smoker.  He is receiving chemotherapy, not to cure but to give some relief and possible slowing down of the process.
What would be the statistics on life expentancy?  Of course, it is different for every individual.
