McCain’s family’s latest statement was just released and it seems that an announcement about his resignation should be coming soon.
Sen. John McCain’s family said Friday that he is discontinuing medical treatment for his cancer, saying the disease has progressed too far to be worth fighting.
Mr. McCain has been battling an aggressive cancer at his home in Arizona and hasn’t been in attendance in the Senate this year, attempting a recovery.
His family issued a statement saying he’s already “surpassed expectations” for survival, given the disease, 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,” the statement said. “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.”
I wish him, and his family all the best during this incredibly difficult time.
