John McCain Discontinues Treatment For Brain Cancer

August 24, 2018

Senator John McCain’s stage four brain cancer continues to progress, and he has chosen to forgo further treatment. The announcement came in a heartfelt statement from the McCain 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,” the statement said. “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.”

The six-term Arizona Republican senator, 81, was previously receiving treatment at the Mayo Clinic.
