Joe Lieberman ‘Praying’ For John McCain As He Halts Treatment For Brain Cancer

    Joe Lieberman is praying for his friend Sen. John McCain, who decided to discontinue treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer, ABC News reported Friday.

    “Becoming John McCain’s friend has been one of the great blessings of my life,” Lieberman said in a statement. “Today I am praying for him and his family.”

    Last summer, McCain said he had been diagnosed with an aggressive glioblastoma, “and the prognosis was serious,” his family said in a statement Friday.

    “The progress of disease and the inexorable advance of age render their verdict,” the McCain family wrote.

    McCain made the decision to discontinue medical treatment, which signals he might have just days to live.

    New York Sen. Chuck Schumer joined a chorus of support for McCain.
