Hello
This is a problem with any illness but people suffering from cancer are more prone to depression or anxiety. You will need to discuss this with him and his doctors, perhaps medication may help him? Your Uncle could also join group therapy and to try to enjoy what he can do. Do you have access to hospice care? Take care and good luck
