Sen. John McCain Diagnosed With Brain Cancer

”On Friday, July 14, Sen. John McCain underwent a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix. Subsequent pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot.

”Scanning done since the procedure (a minimal invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision) shows that the tissue of concern was completely resected by imaging criteria.

”The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.

”The Senator’s doctors say he is recovering from surgery ‘amazingly well’ and his underlying health is excellent.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
