    cancer.

Arizona Sen. John McCain’s family announced
Friday that he will not continue receiving 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,” McCain’s family
said in a statement. “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.”
