Senator McCain Diagnosed With Brain Tumour

Postby toucana on July 19th, 2017, 9:57 pm 

Senator John McCain has been diagnosed with a brain tumour.

http://edition.cnn.com/2017/07/19/health/gupta-mccain-glioblastoma/index.html

The tumour was discovered when the 80 yr. old Republican Senator from Arizona underwent a minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove a blood clot over his left eye that was detected by an MRI scan following a routine health screening.

According to CNN Chief Medical Correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta who spoke with permission to McCain's doctors, the tumour is a primary glioblastoma. This is the same type of tumour that killed Senator Edward Kennedy in 2009.

Very aggressive kind of tumor - treatments are not effective and mortality is nearly certain. I will be sorry to see the Senate lose a man of integrity and genuine devotion to public service. A voice of reason in a political party that really needed one. Arizona, you know what you need to do. Don't let yourself be bought, in the next election.
