    'The family of longtime Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz, said Friday that he has chosen to discontinue medical treatment for brain cancer.

    "Last summer, Senator John McCain shared with Americans the news our family already knew: he had been diagnosed with an aggressive glioblastoma, and the prognosis was serious. In the year since, John has surpassed expectations for his survival. But the progress of disease and the inexorable advance of age render their verdict. With his usual strength of will, he has now chosen to discontinue medical treatment. Our family is immensely grateful for the support and kindness of all his caregivers over the last year, and for the continuing outpouring of concern and affection from John's many friends and associates, and the many thousands of people who are keeping him in their prayers. God bless and thank you all," the family said in a statement.'

    In other words - he will be dead soon.

    Very sad.

    I realize he has led a long and amazing life already. But I always wish people would die of 'natural causes' rather then due to an illness/condition.

    May his last days be as pleasant as can be hoped.

    Had a friend go through this cancer 10 years ago. Very sad. My prayers for strength and comfort for John McCain along with his 106-year-old mom, wife, and rest of family.

    John McCain halts brain cancer treatment

    Good. Sooner we can get another REAL republican in there the better! Hopefully McSally loses to Ward for the Flake senate seat but if not hopefully Ward will run for McAmnesty's seat.
