“Final summer time, Senator John McCain shared with People the information our household already knew: he had been recognized with an aggressive glioblastoma, and the prognosis was critical. Within the 12 months since, John has surpassed expectations for his survival. However the progress of illness and the inexorable advance of age render their verdict. Together with his traditional strength of mind, he has now chosen to discontinue medical remedy,” the household of the Arizona Republican mentioned in an announcement.
McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, is a key voice within the Republican Celebration and an icon of the Senate.
The assertion went on to say, “Our household is immensely grateful for the help and kindness of all his caregivers over the past 12 months, and for the persevering with outpouring of concern and affection from John’s many mates and associates, and the various hundreds of people who find themselves conserving him of their prayers. God bless and thanks all.”
McCain’s spouse and daughter each put out further statements on Twitter.
