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.
