Arizona Senator John McCain, who has been battling brain cancer for more than a year, will no longer receive treatment for his condition, according to an announcement made by his family. The New York Times reports that this is a sign the Republican war hero is most likely entering his final days.

“Last summer, Senator John McCain shared with Americans the news our family already knew: He had been diagnosed with an aggressive glioblastoma, and the prognosis was serious. In the year since, John has surpassed expectations for his survival. But the progress of disease and the inexorable advance of age render their verdict,” the family said in a statement, according to The Times. “With his usual strength of will, he has now chosen to discontinue medical treatment.”
McCain had been undergoing treatment since July 2017 and has been absent from Washington since December. However, he has managed to maintain a voice in key foreign policy and military police debates from his ranch in Arizona, sharply criticizing Trump after his summit meeting with Vladimir Putin.
History will remember the hero that he was not the man Mr Trump portrayed him to be prayers to the family

I have had many, many, many disagreements with @SenJohnMcCain over his policies and sometimes conduct. However, to face the end of one’s life with such courage and dignity is emblematic of the strength that helped him survive 5 years in a Vietnamese POW torture camp. https://t.co/jMcn58w76w
