That’s how long Senator John McCain likely has to live. When the Arizona senator passes, it will be the end of a long and storied career in public service.

The New York Times is reporting that John McCain has stopped seeking treatment for brain cancer.

From the report:

Senator John McCain of Arizona, who has been battling brain cancer for more than a year, will no longer be treated for his condition, his family announced on Friday, a sign that the Republican war hero is most likely entering his final days.

“Last summer, Senator John McCain shared with Americans the news our family already knew: He had been diagnosed with an aggressive glioblastoma, and the prognosis was serious. In the year since, John has surpassed expectations for his survival. But the progress of disease and the inexorable advance of age render their verdict,” the family said in a statement. “With his usual strength of will, he has now chosen to discontinue medical treatment.”

A terminal illness can be unpredictable. But we know from experience that when someone rejects treatment, usually death isn’t far behind. The same thing happened to Barbara Bush earlier this year when she passed away after battling multiple illnesses, including COPD. (RELATED: Barbara Bush In Failing Health.)

We’ve known this day was coming for a while. McCain hasn’t been present in the Senate for most of the year. There have been numerous reports that he’s been saying goodbye to friends and family at his ranch in Arizona.

In his last days, McCain has even come clean about his biggest regrets in his career. Agree or disagree with him, you have to respect it when someone admits a mistake, no matter how late in life. (RELATED: McCain Admits Iraq War Was A Mistake.)

This appears to be the end for the long-time senator. Pray for John McCain’s family. Even if you disagreed with him politically in this life, pray the man finds peace on the other side.
