Default Sen. John McCain to discontinue medical treatment, family says

Quote:
Sen. John McCain, who has battled a deadly form of brain cancer for more than a year, is ending medical treatment, his office said in a statement Friday.
Quote:
The six-term senator from Arizona and 2008 Republican presidential nominee has been battling the cancer, known as glioblastoma, from his home near Sedona since December. His family and a team of caregivers have cared for McCain, 81, ever since.


https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...csp=chromepush

Quote:
"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," the statement said. " In the year since, John has surpassed expectations for his survival.
Quote:
"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."
McCain has continued his Senate duties as much as he could, from his family home in northern Arizona, 2,200 miles away from Washington, D.C. There, he occasionally weighed in on policy and media reports via Twitter, issued official written statements as he deems necessary and receives staff briefings.

Quote:
However, McCain could not cast Senate votes by proxy or in absentia.

Family and friends have visited McCain and his wife Cindy at their Arizona home, including former Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, of South Carolina, and other friends and associates who have worked on his various campaigns.
Quote:
McCain's 82nd birthday is on Aug. 29.
God bless Senator McCain and his family in their hour of need.

I recall when Barbara Bush ended her medical treatments, didn't live much past it. Gonna be a sad day America when McCain goes. A true icon.

So it begins.

‘The Onion’ gets obliterated for this bizarre response to tragic news about John McCain

Quote:
The humor website was slammed by many for the tone-deaf tweet that appeared to attack McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain, and try to mock the unbearable grief she must be feeling at this time.

“Meghan McCain Forced To Live Out Socialist Nightmare Of Empathy For Sick Person,” the headline read, apparently referring to conservatives arguments that universal healthcare often leads to mismanaged health outcomes for patients.

This however isn't satire.

some never learned I guess
If you can't say something nice about someone [who is actually this minute dying!], keep it zipped.
