John McCain’s wife of 37 years, Cindy, shared a photo on her Instagram page that would put anybody with a heart on the brink of tears.
The senator’s family just announced that he was diagnosed with a particularly virulent form of brain cancer this week.
Cindy posted the couple’s wedding photo from their 1980 nuptials, both of them glowing with promise:
“Thank all of you for the wonderful thoughts. @senjohnmccain is doing well. We as a family will face the next hurdle together. One thing I do know is he is the toughest person I know. He is my hero and I love him with all my heart.”
The McCains have four children who were front and center during the senator’s 2008 run for the presidency:
Meghan, Andy, Jimmy, Jack, Doug, Bridget, and Sidney were at the couple’s side at the GOP convention when McCain accepted his party’s nomination for president.
McCain has three other children from his previous marriage.
Sweetly, the senator himself shared the same photo on Mother’s Day:
He wrote, “Happy anniversary @cindymccain. Time flies when you’re having fun!”
