A message from Dr. Kelli Ward to John McCain and the citizens of Arizona;
My prayers are with Senator McCain and his family. The medical reality of his diagnosis is grim. Senator McCain has an aggressive brain cancer that is both devastating and debilitating. When the time comes that Senator McCain can no longer perform his duties in the Senate at full capacity, he owes it to the people of Arizona to step aside.
Senator McCain and his family have a lot of hard decisions to make. As a doctor, I’ve counseled people in similar situations and these end-of-life choices are never easy. I usually advise terminal patients to reduce stress, relax, and spend time laughing with loved ones.
The Senate has complicated and difficult problems to deal with and Arizona deserves to be represented by someone who can focus on those challenges.
I hope and pray that Senator McCain will be comfortable as he battles this terrible disease.
