On Friday, the McCain family announced that Senator John McCain had decided to discontinue medical treatment. In 2017, he was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, called a glioblastoma.


On Saturday, the Senator passed away. His daughter, Meghan McCain took to social media to pay tribute to her father.

Senator John McCain, 81, died at his home in Arizona on Saturday after battling brain cancer. His daughter and “The View” co-host, Meghan McCain, 33, was one of the people who paid tribute to him.

On Twitter, she wrote a long statement honoring her father.

"My father, United States Senator John Sidney McCain III, departed this life today," Meghan wrote. "I was with my father at his end, as he was with me at my beginning," she said.

Meghan shared that they had love for one another and he’d taught her how to live.

"All that I am is thanks to him. Now that he is gone, the task of my lifetime is to live up to his example, his expectations, and his love," Meghan continued.


John was a Republican Senator, a former prisoner of war (POW), and a two-time presidential candidate. A statement was released by his office about his death saying, "Senator John Sidney McCain III died at 4:28 p.m. on August 25, 2018."

The Senator’s wife, Cindy McCain also took to Twitter to mourn the death of her husband.


She wrote, "My heart is broken. I am so lucky to have lived the adventure of loving this incredible man for 38 years." Cindy added, "He passed the way he lived, on his own terms, surrounded by the people he loved, in the place he loved best."

Many former presidents and celebrities also took to social media to honor the fallen Senator. These included President Donald Trump, former President Barack Obama, Joe Biden, former President Bill Clinton and wife Hillary Clinton, and many more.
