The son of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Wednesday that his father "sounds better" every day despite his ongoing battle with brain cancer.

"I talk to him about once a day on the phone, and every time I talk to him, he sounds better than the day before," Jack McCain told The Arizona Republic. 

"He is a very strong human being with the type of will that I have not seen paralleled anywhere else, and I have no doubts that he's going to be fine."

The senator was diagnosed with glioblastoma last July. It was discovered while he was having cranial surgery to remove a blood clot.

"The diagnosis he has is not a good one. But of all of the things that have happened in this man's life, of all of the times that his life could have ended in the ways it could have ended, this is by far one of the least threats to him and that's kind of how he views it," added Jack McCain, the fifth of the senator's seven children and the oldest from his current marriage.

"He's very sober about it. He understands the implication and the weight of it. But for not one minute has he let that take over his feelings towards how hard he has to fight."

"He is more than double my age and can outpace me in almost everything," Jack said. "I have absolutely zero doubt that this is something he can not only beat, but conquer."
