In a statement, it was revealed that McCain had been diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of cancer.

"On Friday, July 14, Sen. John McCain underwent a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix.

He posted some family photos on social media this past weekend. One of the pictures showed McCain attending Arizona Diamondbacks game with his wife, Cindy.
