Senator John McCain Ending Brain Cancer Treatment

A statement released by Senator John McCain's family says that he has decided to stop treatment for an aggressive form of brain cancer.

The 81-year-old made the decision to discontinue medical treatment.

The announcement comes just one year after the Vietnam War hero announced his prognosis.

McCain has represented Arizona in the Senate and House of Representatives for 35 years.

McCain also had surgery for an intestinal infection in April.
