Sen. John McCain Reveals ‘Very Poor Prognosis’ For Brain Cancer

The honorable Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, revealed on “60 Minutes” his prognosis is poor for his case of glioblastoma. He had emergency surgery in July to remove a blood clot above his left eye. McCain, 81, is currently undergoing radiation as well as chemotherapy for treatment. Glioblastoma is known to be a rare and very aggressive form of brain cancer.

“They said that it’s very serious. That the prognosis is very, very serious. Some say three percent, some say 14 percent. You know, it’s a very poor prognosis. So I just said, ‘I understand. Now we’re gonna do what we can, get the best doctor we can find and do what we can.’ And, at the same time, celebrate with gratitude a life well lived.”

Friday McCain voted against the latest health care repeal bill.

“I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal,” McCain said.

“I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried,” he said. “Nor could I support it without knowing how much it will cost, how it will affect insurance premiums, and how many people will be helped or hurt by it. Without a full [Congressional Budget Office] score, which won’t be available by the end of the month, we won’t have reliable answers to any of those questions.”

Sen. McCain, you are the epitome of a true American hero. You have lived a full, honorable life. We will keep you in our prayers.
