Joe Biden comforts John McCain's daughter over father's brain cancer diagnosis

Joe Biden comforts John McCain's daughter over father's brain cancer diagnosis

McCain, an Arizona Republican who ran unsuccessfully for president in 2008, was found to have an aggressive form of brain tumor, glioblastoma, after surgery in July for a blood clot above his left eye.

"I think about Beau nearly every day", she continued.

Former Vice President Biden was a guest on the ABC chatfest to promote his new memoir, "Promise Me, Dad", which focuses on Beau.

She says, "I think about Beau nearly every day and I was told that this doesn't get easier but that you cultivate the tools to work with this and live with this". "I know you and your family have been through tragedy I couldn't conceive of". The elder McCain was diagnosed earlier this year with glioblastoma, a type of aggressive brain cancer that typically has a very poor prognosis. I couldn't get through your book, I tried. "The thing that Beau insisted on, and your dad's going to insist on, is you've gotta have hope", he said, later adding: "We gotta keep moving like this is going to happen".




He continued, "Her dad is one of my best friends".

He jokes that the two are like brothers raised by different fathers due to their opposite points of view - Biden is a Democrat, and McCain is a Republican. "Even when your dad got mad at me, said I should get the hell off the ticket, and remember what I said about your dad?" I know if I picked up the phone tonight and called John McCain and said, "John, I'm at Second and Vine in Oshkosh, and I need your help". And I would for him, too. Biden appeared on The View to discuss the book on Wednesday, and things got pretty emotional. "You have to have hope". "There's hope. Hope - you have to have hope", Biden said. This is why I set up this foundation (the Biden Cancer Initiative) after we did the Moonshot.

McCain closed the almost 8-minute segment by thanking Biden "for your compassion, you're a great hope to me and everyone else in the country right now".
