WASHINGTON — Senator John McCain said over the weekend that doctors have given him a ‘‘very poor prognosis’’ as he battles brain cancer.
McCain underwent surgery in July for a brain tumor that was later found to be a form of glioblastoma, the same type of cancer that took the life of his former Senate colleague Edward M. Kennedy in 2009.
McCain told CBS’s ‘‘60 Minutes’’ in an interview that aired Sunday night that he thinks about Kennedy a lot. He said that Kennedy continued to work despite his diagnosis, and that he ‘‘never gave up because he loved the engagement.’’
McCain said he has ‘‘feelings sometimes of fear of what happens,’’ but counters that with gratitude for having lived ‘‘a great life.’’
He adds: ‘‘It’s not that you’re leaving, it’s that you . . . that you stayed.’’
McCain has been a pivotal figure in the Senate debate over repealing the Obama health care law the Kennedy supported.
He is among a small group of Senate Republicans who have said they would not support the repeal effort, although he has not addressed revisions to the bill that leaders announced Monday.
