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. "They said that the prognosis is very, very serious". 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?

Joe Biden eased Meghan McCain's fears over her father John McCain's cancer during "The View" on Wednesday. "There's breakthroughs occurring now ... There is hope. If anybody can make it, your dad [can]", the former US vice president told McCain. Biden appeared on "CBS This Morning" Wednesday to discuss his memoir and his son's life.

"One of the things that gave Beau courage. was John", Biden said. "You know, Immanuel Kant's phrase, there's three things to happiness: something to do, someone to love, and something to look forward to". "I think about Beau nearly every day, and I was told that this doesn't get easier", McCain said, through tears.
