John McCain has stopped his treatment for brain cancer
Anyway, McCain has stopped taking the treatments for the brain cancer he's been fighting for a year now. Sounds like it isn't responding and getting worse. My Aunt, my Dad's sister, died of brain cancer, and it's an ugly way to go. And because of that I feel sympathy for him and his family knowing what they are and have been going through. Since his cancer is aggressive and he's stopped treatment I doubt he'll see the end of September. Whatever I feel about him politically, I'll put aside for now. I wouldn't wish what he's going through on anyone.
WASHINGTON -- Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is suspending treatment for brain cancer. He is 81. Here is a statement from his family.
"Last summer, Senator John McCain shared with Americans the news our family already knew: he had been diagnosed with an aggressive glioblastoma, and the prognosis was serious. In the year since, John has surpassed expectations for his survival. But the progress of disease and the inexorable advance of age render their verdict. With his usual strength of will, he has now chosen to discontinue medical treatment. Our family is immensely grateful for the support and kindness of all his caregivers over the last year, and for the continuing outpouring of concern and affection from John's many friends and associates, and the many thousands of people who are keeping him in their prayers. God bless and thank you all."
