MCCAIN FAC­ING ‘VERY VI­CIOUS FORM OF CANCER’

Metro USA (Boston) - - NEWS -

1Sen. John McCain, who re­cently re­turned to Wash­ing­ton af­ter treat­ment for brain cancer, said the dis­ease is vi­cious but that the treat­ment is go­ing well and he has more en­ergy than be­fore. “This is a very vi­cious form of cancer that I‘m fac­ing,” McCain, a Re­pub­li­can who ran un­suc­cess­fully for pres­i­dent in 2008, told CNN’s “State of the Union” pro­gram. The 80-year-old Ari­zona sen­a­tor was found to have an ag­gres­sive form of brain tu­mor, glioblas­toma, af­ter surgery in July for a blood clot above his left eye. “All the results so far are ex­cel­lent,” McCain said of his treat­ment, adding that the prog­no­sis was “pretty good.” “I‘m fac­ing a chal­lenge, but I’ve faced other chal­lenges, and I’m very con­fi­dent about get­ting through this one as well,” the sen­a­tor said.
