After undergoing brain surgery for a blood clot, Sen. John McCain was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The tumor, a primary glioblastoma, is an aggressive tumor which may require treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy.
Recently, Sen. McCain's daughter Meghan McCain shared this moving message on Twitter:
Fellow Arizona senator and Latter-day Saint Jeff Flake called this statement "wonderful" and "moving" and added his own message for Sen. McCain, along with other prominent LDS politicians:
