Assalamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh, This is a sad situation and my feelings go out to you and your family. Allaah SWT tests us in many ways....and this was and continues to be a test for your brother and your family. When situations like this happen, we really feel helpless and no human being can help us overcome and fill the void of loss (referring to the loss of marriage) nor the helplessnes surrounding illness of innocents and those close to us. The only source of strength can come from Allaah Subhanahu Wa Taala so I urge you to turn to Him and Him only and pray, perform duaas, be close to Allaah SWT, feel His power and closeness with you. Trully, only He can help you, this is not in your hands. (I am referring to the baby's illness). Sadly this test was too much for your brother and his wife to bear and it broke their marriage. Many a marriage is broken when major life events of such distressing nature occur. Some marriages are actually strengthened but most are broken as it is tough on both marriage partners. Having said all this, I have to advise you that going to the future teller was a big mistake for number of reasons. Firstly, Islam prohibits such actions and persons who conduct witchcraft are condemned. As you have witnessed firsthand, these people do not bring any good and pretend and are the works of shaitan. Never, ever place your trust in their words....turn to Allaah SWT for He is the Glorious Ruler of all. No human being can foretell the future. Pray, and ask Allaah SWT for forgiveness and repent by never, ever allowing shaitan to guide you to such worthless nonsense that these so called future tellers meddle in. Muhammad SAW said Seventy thousand of my people will enter paradise without being taken to account. They are those who do not use spells or take omens, but put their trust in their Lord. (Bukhari, Muslim).

As for the little baby, you are doing all that you can to help her medical condition. In your heart you know this. That should make you feel reassured to a degree. As a family you are supporting your brother through this situation and you should feel good about this too. The next thing that you can do is once again, turn to Allaah SWT and pray, perform duaas and ask from Him that he strengthens the little girl and gives her good health and protection. Seek refuge in Allaah SWT and the Qur'an In the Qur'an and duaa there may be healing for all ills, by Allaah’s leave. There is a great deal of evidence for that, for example Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):“Say: ‘It is for those who believe, a guide and a healing’”[Fussilat 41:44] “And We send down of the Qur’aan that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe” There are many duaas for protection that you can access at the link below http://www.luvu4luv.com/Prayer_Protection.html On behalf of all your Muslim brothers and sisters I wish your baby girl and your family an abundance of Allaah SWT's blessings and His mercy. Allaah is the Most Merciful, Most Compassionate, and He is the most Merciful of those who show mercy. His Mercy encompasses all things. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

“and My Mercy embraces all things. " (al-Araaf 7:156)

Duaas will be made for your little girl. Sallaam.

Salaam, just make du'a for your bother and his wife for everything to be alright. Telling the future is HARAAM, it's shirk. Please DO NOT believe that. Shirk is to disbelieve in ALLAH.

Make du'a for the baby, ask Allah for His help. That's the best thing you can do.
