Senators propose Glioblastoma Awareness Day

Sen. Martha McSally and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema teamed up to raise awareness about the deadly disease that claimed the life of longtime lawmaker Sen. John McCain.

Sen. Martha McSally, who now sits in the late-senator’s seat, introduced a resolution to make July 17 Glioblastoma Awareness Day.

In July 2017, McCain was diagnosed with the aggressive form of brain cancer. He died a little more than a year later.

The goal is to raise awareness about the disease and support new research and treatment options. It’s also a way to honor those who have died or are currently battling Glioblastoma.

Sen. Lindsey Graham and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, two of McCain’s closes friends and colleagues, co-sponsored the resolution. Sen. Elizabeth Warren was also a co-sponsor.
