John McCain Signals He’s in His Final Days – Discontinues Medical Treatment For Brain Cancer

John McCain’s family said in a statement released Friday that the Arizona Senator will discontinue medical treatment for brain cancer, signaling he is in his final days.

McCain, 81, served in Congress for over three decades, however he has not voted since last December.

John McCain served in Vietnam and was captured as a prisoner of war for five years.

FOX News reported:

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain, the self-styled “maverick” of the Senate who has served three decades in Congress, will discontinue medical treatment for brain cancer, his family said in a statement Friday.

“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.”

They said, “With his usual strength of will, he has now chosen to discontinue medical treatment.”

John McCain’s daughter Meghan McCain thanked everyone for the love and generosity shown to her family over the past year.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell offered up his prayers to the McCain family.
