US Senator John McCain in Hospital over Brain Tumor Side Effects

WASHINGTON – Republican Senator and former presidential candidate John McCain was hospitalized on Wednesday for side effects of cancer therapy, his office said in a statement.

McCain, 81, was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain tumor, in July, following a surgery to extract a blood clot above his left eye.

“Senator McCain is currently receiving treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center for normal side effects of his ongoing cancer therapy,” the statement said.

The Walter Reed Medical Center, where McCain has been undergoing chemotherapy and radiation to treat the cancer, is a military hospital located just outside of Washington.

McCain had delayed the start of his treatment to vote against the repeal of Obamacare, alongside two other Republicans, that was a significant blow to President Donald Trump.

The senator, who fought in the Vietnam War and was a prisoner of war for more than five years, has served as the Arizona senator since 1987 and had ran unsuccessfully for President in 2008.
