My father completed first round radiation/chemo. His resilience & strength is incredible. Fight goes on, here’s to small wins. #fuckcancer

McCain was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer, on July 19, and returned to Congress 11 days after a routine procedure to remove a blood clot above his left eye.
As news about this spread through social media, many Twitter users offered encouraging words of support:
Good to hear, and thanks for the update!
