Joe Biden comforts John McCain's daughter over father's brain cancer diagnosis

Sen. John McCain R-Ariz. makes his way to a meeting Dec. 1 in Washington about the Republican tax bill. An Achilles tendon tear in early November put him in a walking boot

During his appearance on "The View", Biden, a former Democratic senator from DE, recounted his long friendship with John McCain and how McCain had befriended Beau many years earlier when he served as a Navy liaison officer to the Senate.

McCain has been receiving treatment since being diagnosed with a glioblastoma - a cancerous brain tumor - last July. The elder McCain was diagnosed earlier this year with glioblastoma, a type of aggressive brain cancer that typically has a very poor prognosis.

He jokes that the two are like brothers raised by different fathers due to their opposite points of view - Biden is a Democrat, and McCain is a Republican.

Meghan McCain was in tears as soon as she introduced Joe Biden, saying she had tried to read his book "Promise Me Dad", but couldn't get through it without becoming emotional. "Your son Beau had the same cancer that my father was diagnosed with six months ago".

Jeff Horn: Ex-teacher who beat Manny Pacquiao defends WBO welterweight title
Despite his efforts, Corcoran was awarded a total of two rounds, with one judge giving him the second round and another the sixth. WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn throws a right hook at Gary Corcoran in his 11th-round TKO victory.

"Your dad, when he was a military aide, would work with me and became friends with Beau", he said.

She says, "I think about Beau nearly every day and I was told that this doesn't get easier but that you cultivate the tools to work with this and live with this". "I know you and your family have been through tragedy that you can't conceive of". I swear guys, we are going to beat this damned disease.

"It is about everyone, but look, one of the things that gave Beau courage - my word - was John". Beau talked about your dad's courage. He told her there's hope, and a medical breakthrough is possible. "There is hope. And if anybody can make it, your dad [can]".

Before dispensing his advice for coping, Biden, 75, took McCain's hand and recounted how he first got to know her dad. We're like two brothers who were somehow raised by different fathers or something because of our points of view.
