When it was announced last year that U.S. Sen. John McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer, CNN’s chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, said the average survival for a malignant glioblastoma patient getting treatment is a little more than a year.

McCain died 13 months later, on August 25, with his wife, Cindy, and their family at his side, according to his U.S. Senate webpage. On August 29, he lay in state at the Arizona State Capitol in Phoenix, followed by a private, formal ceremony inside the Rotunda of the Arizona State Capitol.

The next day, Arizona National Guard personnel carried McCain by motorcade in a public procession to the North Phoenix Baptist Church. One of those who attended a memorial service August 30 at the church was Goodyear Mayor Georgia Lord.
