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.
Here’s the rest of the story…
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.”
