Joe Biden Comforts Tearful Meghan McCain Over Father's Cancer

"I know if I called John McCain and said, 'John, I'm at Second and Vine in Osh Kosh, ' he would get on a plane and come", beamed Biden. "Her dad is one of my best friends", he told the audience.

McCain has been receiving treatment since being diagnosed with a glioblastoma - a cancerous brain tumor - last July. As a man of considerable personal wealth, however, the 81-year-old senator will have access to high-quality health care.

This fall, Joe Biden will travel the nation for his American Promise Tour, a series of conversations that will go beyond the 24-hour news cycle and 140-character arguments to connect friends and neighbors around the topics that matter most.

The former vice president knows firsthand how hard it can be to watch a family member suffer from cancer; his son Beau died in 2015, also from glioblastoma. Remember what I said about your dad?
