MCCAIN FACING ‘VERY VICIOUS FORM OF CANCER’
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.
