With his usual strength of will, he has now chosen to discontinue medical treatment,” McCain’s family said in a statement. reports: The statement went on to say, “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’s wife and daughter both put out additional statements on Twitter.

Cindy McCain, the senator’s wife, wrote in a tweet, “I love my husband with all of my heart. God bless everyone who has cared for my husband along this journey.”

The senator’s daughter, Meghan McCain, said in a tweet, “My family is deeply appreciative of all the love and generosity you have shown us during this past year. Thank you for all your continued support and prayers. We could not have made it this far without you – you’ve given us strength to carry on.”

  1. Biggest TRAITOR ever. Killed 139 sailors on the USS forrestal, ratted out our MILITARY while in a prison camp to save his own ass. Blocked all information about the Vietnam war, for 75 years, so hed be dead before they found out just how big a traitor IS was

  2. Can’t wait to find out where old “Rent-A-John” is finally planted so I can visit to relieve myself.

  3. Is all I can say is good about time and I agree with both of you he is far worse than the only true EX Marine Murtha. They were both traitors to the constitution ,their oath, and the USA.

  4. We are all going to die sooner or later, its the Spirit that lives on.
    I really don’t care where his Spirit will be for eternity.
    I just care about mine and those I love.
    The real tough part about being a Christian is …..Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

  5. The longer he lingers the longer he suffers… and the longer those close to him suffer……. that’s what the devil does to his children…he builds them up…puffs them up with Pride… and grinds them into the ground.. preparing them to be with him in hell…. linger longer mcain you grub…linger longer………

  6. he should’ve been forcibly retired when the cancer was diagnosed. Do the liberal p r I c k s think he could make correct decisions with his brain tumor? Of course he was a traitor to his oath anyway……..
