John McCain has brain cancer, his office says

John McCain has brain cancer, his office says”

McCain had an operation last Friday to remove a blood from above his left eye at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix. He has been recuperating since.

Meghan McCain shared an emotional tribute to her father on Twitter, where she released a statement following news that the Arizona senator had been diagnosed with brain cancer.

President Trump, who infamously said McCain was "not a war hero" because he was captured, issued a statement calling the senator "a fighter" and sending him "thoughts and prayers". His doctors say he's showing no neurological problems after his operation and is recovering at his home in Arizona, considering the different treatment options which will likely include radiation and chemotherapy.

Sen. John McCain has been diagnosed with the most aggressive form of brain cancer.

The senator's daughter, Meghan McCain, released a touching statement on Twitter following the news of his cancer diagnosis Wednesday night, asking for support for her family during this hard time.

"Senator John McCain has always been a fighter", President Donald Trumpsaid.

According to the American Brain Tumor Association, glioblastomas are tumors that arise from astrocytes-the star-shaped cells that make up the "glue-like" or supportive tissue of the brain. John McCain representing Arizona described how he learned of his elder colleague's brain cancer diagnosis through a casual comment in a conversation Wednesday. "Give it hell, John", Obama tweeted.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell described Mr McCain as "a hero to our Conference and a hero to our country".

"If it's physically possible he'll be back as soon as possible", said South Carolina Sen. Representative Steve Scalise tweeted, "Praying for my friend @SenJohnMcCain, one of the toughest people I know".

But one of the most moving messages came from the man who defeated McCain in the 2008 presidential election, Barack Obama.

Lindsey Graham of SC, told reporters he spoke to McCain on Wednesday, and McCain told him, "I've been through worse".

McCain, a prisoner of war during Vietnam, has served in the Senate for 30 years.
