Despite the discouraging diagnose, Sen. John McCain continues to work and fight brain cancer. Unfortunately, Mr. McCain is suffering from glioblastoma, which is an extremely aggressive form of cancer and life expectancy with it is very low.
The disease is very well-known in the political world. Same cancer took lives of Senator Ted Kennedy and the oldest son of former vice president Joe Biden, Beau. But there is one person who is ready to fight this disease with Sen. McCain – his loving daughter Meghan.
The doting daughter
After learning about her father’s diagnose, she quit Fox and spent as much time with him as possible, joining him at every doctor’s visit. Her devotion is not surprising as Meghan calls her dad “the sun of her universe.”
In an interview with Glamour she said:
He’s the last person who needs to be sick now because I so need him here, fighting for all the things that we believe in. I’m scared of America without him.
The trouble is John McCain does not fight for what we believe in. I'm so sorry your father is dying, but he has been anything but helpful to the American people.— Glen Roberson (@GDR_Photography) August 5, 2018
I don't agree with his politics. I do agree he needs to be with you and your family. I lost my mother to cancer. She was taken to soon. Enjoy every minute with him.— Bill Martinez (@BillMar10109) August 5, 2018
Please let him rest we don't want his help— Leon Tremmel (@ltremmel) August 5, 2018
you're going to have to face it on your own....I lost my parents 2 months apart...after watching them suffer it is a painful blessing.....I am just happy they don't have to be here to live what we are all living through. Sorry your team gave up on all your values to win .— Karen Bissell (@kvkb1964) August 6, 2018
He's definitely one of the nicest Democrats— Carl Nielsen (@carlnielsen) August 5, 2018
The fight is still on
When John McCain was sent back to the hospital for another operation in April, the doctors prepared Meghan that if she wants to say something to her dad, this would be the time. She hesitated for a moment but then firmly said:
We’ve done that. He knows I love him more than anything, and I know he loves me more than anything. There’s nothing else. What's next?
Meghan will never give up on her dad and there is nothing less than admiration that her courage evokes in us.
