Senator John McCain has completed his first round of chemotherapy and radiation treatment.

The Arizona senator was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a malignant brain tumor, in July whilst undergoing surgery for a blood clot.

The 80-year-old senator – who President Obama called “one of the bravest fighters I’ve ever known” – is receiving treatment at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Arizona.

Daughter Megan shared the news of a successful first round of treatment, tweeting, “My father completed first round radiation/chemo. His resilience & strength is incredible. Fight goes on, here’s to small wins.”

McCain also tweeted out his thanks to the medical staff at Mayo, writing, “Thank you to the wonderful team – we appreciate everything you do!”
