Senator John McCain to stop cancer treatment

In a statement from the McCain family released this morning, the Arizona Senator announced that due to his age, prognosis and progress of the disease that he has decided to stop treatment for his brain tumor.

McCain was diagnosed with  glioblastoma last fall.

The statement does not address McCain’s Senate seat, which he has continued to hold while his health deteriorates.

His wife, Cindy McCain, expressed her gratitude on Twitter, “I love my husband with all of my heart. God bless everyone who has cared for my husband along this journey.”

Prayers go out to the McCain family during this very difficult time.
