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.
