So terribly sad to read this. My Mom died of liver cancer. There is no cure unfortunately, just make him comfortable. God Bless you Robin and to all the Gibb family.

Wow... that is very bad news. Once cancer gets to he liver, there isn't much time until the person dies.

He's a legend. Didn't one of his brothers also die from a stomach issue? Wonder if it's genetic. Anyway, very sad, and wish him all the best.

If you are able to catch the liver cancer earlier on, it is survivable, but usually there aren't any signs anything is wrong, and usually when you finally figure out something isn't right, it's too late, it'll just progress until death occurs, which is actually kind of rapid. I've seen people get diagnosed and then gone within the month.

HATE to hear this . This family has already suffered so much loss. May God bless & be with them all. What a tremendously talented group of brothers they are. Such a contribution to the music world, hard to even measure it. My heart goes out to them. Wonder if their mother is still alive?
