People from around the nation have chimed in to the news of Senator John McCain being diagnosed with brain cancer.
McCain’s own reaction shows his bravery in his fight with cancer.
When speaking with a Senate colleague, the military veteran and former prisoner of war declared, “I’ve been through worse.”
The political world was stunned on Wednesday when it was revealed that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) had been diagnosed with glioblastoma, a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer.
So how did McCain respond to the devastating news? Like a true American badass.
“I’ve been through worse,” McCain told colleague Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
McCain has survived some tragic situations and is sure to show the same heroism in his fight against cancer:
McCain acknowledged his road to recovery will be long and mean but said he has been through wars and was described as sounding “resolved and determined,” according to Fox News.

Not only has McCain been through war, he survived as a prisoner of war in Vietnam for over five years. He suffered horrific injuries from being tortured and was left unable to lift his arms over his head.
That’s why Graham declared, “The disease has never had a more worthy opponent.”
