Joe Biden Consoles Meghan McCain About Her Father's Battle with Cancer

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

"There is hope. And if anybody can make it, your dad [can]".

Joe Biden, the former U.S. Vice President, was a guest on the December 13 edition of ABC's daytime talk show "The View" to discuss his new book "Promise Me, Dad" about his late son Beau Biden.

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".

During Wednesday's ABC's panel show "The View", the former Vice President again demonstrated his affection for Senator McCain and his family.

"One of the things that gave Beau courage ... was John", Biden said. And you remember what I said? "As ever, he remains grateful to his physicians for their excellent care, and his friends and supporters for their encouragement and good wishes". I couldn't get through your book, I tried. "We were like two brothers who somehow were somehow raised by different fathers or something because of our points of view", Biden reminisced. I know, and I mean this sincerely. Come. He'd get on the plane and come. "Come.' He would and I would for him too". "This is the guy".

"The thing that I've found", he told McCain, "and Beau insisted on, your dad is going to insist on, is you got to maintain hope, there's hope, you have to have hope".

Senator John McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer in July 2017; a tumor was discovered after McCain underwent a minor surgical procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye.

McCain and her father both tweeted about the segment after it aired. "Thank you for your kindness today and sharing your story with us". Throughout his final year as vice president, Biden directed much of his attention towards advancing a so-called "moonshot", an effort at finding new cures and treatments for cancer in memory of his late son. And it's on the house.
