McCain Improving, Family and Friends Insist

“It’s not how you die. It’s how you live.” – Meghan McCain

(Amy Lieu | Fox News) U.S. Sen. John McCain is feeling better as he recovers from cancer treatment and surgery in Arizona, according to family members and friends.

Arizona’s junior U.S. senator, Jeff Flake, told Fox News on Friday that he spoke with McCain by phone that morning, and said his 81-year-old colleague was “doing better” than he had been recently.

In April, McCain underwent surgery for an intestinal infection.

McCain continues to receive a steady stream of visitors at his family’s ranch in Arizona.

Daughter Meghan McCain, 33, a co-host of ABC’s “The View,” has been flying back and forth from New York City to Arizona to visit her father in recent weeks.

“My dad’s actually doing really well right now,” she said on the program this week. “I believe in the power of prayer, and I think it’s helping.”

She also clapped back at reports that White House aide Kelly Sadler had remarked, “It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway,” in reference to John McCain’s opposition to President Donald Trump’s nomination of Gina Haspel to lead the CIA.

“It’s not how you die,” Meghan McCain responded. “It’s how you live.” She thanked viewers for their positive thoughts regarding her father.

“We’re really strong. There’s so much more love and prayer and amazing energy being generated towards us than anything negative at all. And I feel so blessed,” she said. See the full report at Fox News.
