(Newser) – Cancer-stricken Paul Newman is finished with chemotherapy and has gone home to be with his family, Fox News reports. The 82-year-old Oscar-winner reportedly has weeks to live but “didn’t want to die in the hospital,” a family friend said. The actor is said to have been getting his affairs in order; at home he'll be with wife Joanne Woodward and his five daughters, who are “beside themselves with grief.”
