Sen. John McCain, who was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer last year, will no longer receive treatment, his family announced Friday.

Last summer, the Arizona Republican said he had been diagnosed with an aggressive glioblastoma — “and the prognosis was serious,” his 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,” the McCain family said.

“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, who had been undergoing treatment since July 2017, has been absent from Washington since December.

His family has gathered in Arizona, where people close to him say his death is imminent, according to The New York Times.
