    John McCain Brain Cancer

    I don't always agree with his politics but he's a good man and I'm desperately sorry to see this.

    He represents to me the good side of America: the kindness, the generosity, the sense of justice. At times like this in particular we need him, and more like him.

    John McCain has brain cancer, his office says - BBC News
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    I'm glad he sought treatment. His questioning during the Comey hearing back in June had me seriously concerned for his health. I had never seen him like that.

    I hope he wins this fight.
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    He's 80. What constitutes a win?

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Re: John McCain Brain Cancer

    I can't imagine why. Being able to step away at 80 instead of suffering twenty years' mental disintegration seems far preferable for family, friends and the 80 year old. Reaching 81 is a sentence, not a milestone.

    Re: John McCain Brain Cancer

    The "fight" and "win" attitude concerning cancer is such a commercial hoax and myth. Cancer is not a competitive encounter - it is defined as cell division.

    Cancer: An abnormal growth of cells which tend to proliferate in an uncontrolled way and, in some cases, to metastasize (spread).

    There is no "beating" this cancer. Senator McCain will have the brain cancer removed "as much as possible". Then there is the choice of taking chemo & radiation.
    I say "choice" because the quality of life during the treatments.
    This form of cancer has a limited life span - Senator McCain has @ 15 months - 2 years.

    I will pray

    Fight, beat, whatever.

    He has plenty of family support if needed to make decisions for him.

    Yes, McCain has a large family support - this cancer will involve/ affect them all.

    McCain shouldn't be trusted to make any decisions from this moment on.
    I knew there was something very wrong during the Comey questioning.

    You understand Dr.'s will have to drill & remove a portion of his skull to remove a portion of the cancer in the brain mass. He then has to wear a hard cover cap over the skull and that is wrapped up in gauge - like a Q-tip. Depending on the swelling/drainage (tubed) (shank) etc. will determine the next step of treatment.
    He could lose his sight - body functions - simple motor skills.
    This will be a family affair - unfortunate for all.

    Senator McCain our war hero will not be able to walk way from this.

    It's sad indeed
    Patsy
