    In recent years deadly brain tumors have challenged both Jimmy Carter and John McCain, but the two political icons have had vastly different treatment results.

    They had different treatment results because they had 2 different types of cancers, GBM vs. Melanoma. McCain's tumors started in his brain, while Jimmy Carter's metastasized from another part of his body to his brain and liver. Very different cancers, with very different treatment modalities.
