My goodness my heart goes out to you for all you've lost, your 2 little boys. As for your sister be honest with him, tell him she is sick (I'm assuming she is going to try treatment) and that she may die. Answer his questions honestly. Encourage him to ask questions and tell you how he feels. That way you can make sure he has a healthy understanding of what's happening and what to expect.
