To share her grief, She took to Instagram to post a picture of herself and her late father, revealing that she misses him so much. She captioned the post:
" 502 days. Every time I think I can't miss you more... as you always used to say Illegitimi non carborundum. I would cut off one of my limbs to talk to you again for 5 minutes…"
Her fans and supporters sympathized with her in the comment section. While some prayed for her and her family, others sent their condolences.

502 days. Every time I think I can’t miss you more... as you always used to say Illegitimi non carborundum. I would cut off one of my limbs to talk to you again for 5 minutes. I carry your heart in my heart and your fire in my veins. Grief is such a relentless bitch. The strain of the daily albatross of carrying it around never lightens, we all just adapt and become skilled at hiding it. Fuck glioblastoma. ♥️🇺🇸
On the day before the one year anniversary of his death, Meghan posted a picture of herself and her dad holding hands, and in the caption, she said the day of his passing was the worst day of her life.
"There are many of us who are in grief and have lost those love love so deeply. But it makes me feel less alone and hopefully others less alone to share the grief process that is still so taboo to some."
Last year tomorrow, August 25th was the worst day of my life. I lost my hero. I miss my father every single day, I will for the rest of my life. Grief is omnipresent and relentless. For every single person who has sent prayers, love & support to my family, we are truly grateful pic.twitter.com/3kaPTTGJHf— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) August 24, 2019
In 2017, he had a blood clot removed from his left eye. It was later discovered that there was the presence of brain cancer associated with the clot.
Tomorrow is my birthday. I'm 35. Every event is a moment I am experiencing without my Dad. In his honor please join me in donating to The Barrow Neurological Foundation to find a cure for Glioblastoma brain cancer and fight the pure evil that is cancer. https://t.co/B3DPNO8ew9 pic.twitter.com/WPXFUbP9EC— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) October 22, 2019
