Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain vowed Wednesday that he will return to the Senate after undergoing cancer treatments this month.
McCain, 80, was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive type of brain cancer, last month.
During a town hall discussion on Facebook live Wednesday, McCain thanked those who have reached out to him after his diagnosis.
“Thanks for your outpouring of affection,” McCain said of the phone calls and letters he has received. “Even those that want me to die don’t want me to die right away, so that’s good.”
He said he was touched by the kind words he has received and called himself “literally the luckiest guy on Earth.”
