John McCain Diagnosed With Aggressive Brain Cancer
US Senator John McCain has been diagnosed with brain cancer, as his office reported on Tuesday. Last Friday he had an operation to remove the blood clot from above his left eye at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix. The analysis of the removed tissue which was performed after the operation revealed that the blood clot was caused by an aggressive brain tumor, known as glioblastoma which is one of the most common brain tumors but also one of the most malignant. The senator is recovering from the operation at his home in Arizona with his family where he is reviewing further treatment options. McCain already has a history with cancer, as several malignant melanomas were removed from his skin during the 90’s and 2000’s. Senator has received many words of support and one of the first people who expressed his best wishes is former president Barack Obama who McCain ran against in the presidential elections of 2008. President Trump has also expressed his support.
Many other politicians have also express similar support for John McCain and all hope that he and his family will remain strong through this difficult time for the Arizona Senator. John McCain and his family have not yet spoken directly to the media regarding this personal matter , but did extend heartfelt thank you, for all the love and support.
John McCain is an American hero & one of the bravest fighters I’ve ever known. Cancer doesn’t know what it’s up against. Give it hell, John.
