McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer in July 2017 after a routine check up revealed he had a blood clot over his left eye.
Early this week, he determined to discontinue his cancer treatment.
In 2017, after McCain had a surgery to remove the blood clot, doctors determined the condition was the result of an aggressive tumor called a glioblastoma.
President Donald Trump has repeatedly mocked McCain, saying that he preferred those who were not captured. Both men did not have a good relationship until the very end.
