McCain diagnosed with Brain Cancer!

Republican Senator representing the State of Arizona, John McCain has been diagnosed with brain cancer.
His office revealed in a statement that a tumour was discovered during a surgery to remove a blood clot above his left eye last week.

The US Senator, who’s also a veteran is said to be reviewing options which may include chemotherapy and radiation. The 80-year-old politician is in “good spirits” recovering at home.

The six-term senator and 2008 Republican presidential candidate underwent surgery at a clinic in Phoenix, in the state of Arizona, last Friday.

Doctors say he is recovering from his surgery ‘amazingly well’ and his underlying health is excellent,” it added.

Although his family is said to be in shock over the state of health of the Vietnam veteran, he said to be calm and taking the situation in good spirit.
President Donald Trump in a statement wished him well, aaking him to get well soon because he has always been a fighter while former President Barack Obama tweeted: “John McCain is an American hero and one of the bravest fighters I’ve ever known. Cancer doesn’t know what it’s up against. Give it hell, John.”
