This is sad news. On a personal note, the type of brain cancer that Senator John MCain (R-AZ) has been diagnosed with, is very aggressive. The treatment usually includes both chemotherapy and radiation which can extend his life for about up to 2 more years. I know this because I had a very dear friend who passed away with this very same diagnosis.

He is a tough gentleman with a fighting spirit but there is no way to sugar coat his situation. This is going to be a rough road for him.

I personally have appreciated his strong stance against Russia.

On July 19, 2017, the staff of the Washington Post posted the following sad report, “Sen. John McCain diagnosed with brain cancer.”

“The office for the 80-year-old McCain, the Republican nominee for president in 2008 and a U.S. senator representing Arizona since 1987, released a statement from the Mayo Clinic announcing that, after undergoing a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye last week, “Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot.”

“The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.”

  1. “McCain’s Mayo doctors said the senator’s next treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.

    That’s standard, and the care can take weeks to months. Even among those who respond to initial treatment, the cancer can come back, and often within 12 to 24 months. The American Cancer Society puts the five-year survival rate for patients over 55 at about 4 percent.”

    Poor guy, praying he has some quality of life left, and a huge stash of cannabis.

    • Dear Kim,

      While I don’t agree with him on a lot, I have always admired him. I remember him as one republican who defended President Obama at a town hall meeting when someone in the audience was talking about President Obama not being really an American.

      Hugs, Gronda

    • Dear Gary J.,

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Lately I have especially appreciated him as he has been a major thorn in the side of President Trump, especially with regards to Russia.

      Hugs, Gronda

      • Always, for someone who was so disrespected in captivity, who rose above that to become a representative of the people, to want to serve his country. personally I am a shadow that walks and talks freedom because of such persons. A light amongst shadows… Hugs to you big one…

  2. Very sad indeed. I do not always agree with his positions, but he is a good man and I have always respected and admired him. This is the same type of brain cancer that struck Ted Kennedy, and I understand the average survival time is about 16 months. My a.m. post is along the same lines as yours ….
    Hugs, my friend!

    • Dear Jill,

      I too have admired and respected him.Lately, his voice has been crucial as a block against DDT’s stance on Russia. He is someone who will be missed.

      Hugs, Gronda

    • Dear Xena,

      Thanks for your kind words. We both will be praying for him. He has been the Senate’s stalwart, someone who can’t be pushed around.

      And thanks a million for all your support and for this reblog.

      Hugs, Gronda
