FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dr. Kathie Allen Statement On Senator John McCain’s Cancer Diagnosis
7/20/2017—HOLLADAY, UTAH—It was with great shock that my staff and I learned of Senator John McCain’s diagnosis of glioblastoma of the brain. As a family doctor, I know that the only thing more difficult than delivering a cancer diagnosis is being the one to receive it.
Senator McCain has served his country valiantly his entire life. After enduring the horrors of a POW camp, he dedicated his career to public service. I have often appreciated his moderate voice in an increasingly polarized amphitheater. For all of his many accomplishments, he is a true American hero.
We wish Senator McCain a full recovery, and are gladdened that he is receiving good medical care. The thoughts and prayers of myself and my campaign staff are with him and his family.
Dr. Kathie Allen
