John McCain diagnosed with brain cancer

John McCain is an American politician who is perhaps best known for running against Barack Obama in the 2008 Presidential Election in the United States of America. As now history attest the then 72 years old John McCain lost to the then 47 years old Barack Obama.

John McCain currently serves as the senior United States Senator from Arizona, he has been in that office since 1987.

On July 14, 2017, McCain underwent a minimally invasive craniotomy to remove a blood clot above his left eye at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, prompting Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to delay a vote on the Better Care Reconciliation act.

On July 19, 2017, it was announced that the pathology on the removed tissue revealed it to be a glioblastoma—a very aggressive brain cancer.

“Senator John McCain has always been a fighter. Melania and I send our thoughts and prayers to Senator McCain, Cindy, and their entire family. Get well soon,” US President Donald Trump said.

“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,” Former US President Barack Obama said.
