Dad of tragic Wicklow beauty blogger who died of cancer passes away, just three months after her death
The father of tragic Wicklow beauty blogger Jayda McCann has lost his brave battle with cancer, just three months after his daughter’s untimely death.
Anthony McCann passed away peacefully at his home in Greystones on Sunday and was cremated in a ceremony attended by family and friends this afternoon.
Anthony and Jayda both battled cancer at the same time. Jayda lost her battle to a rare form of the disease called PEComa last October.
In one of Jayda’s last posts on Instagram, she revealed Anthony’s cancer had spread from his prostate to his liver, lungs and spine, saying: “Dad is now in the same boat as me… meaning that he is now officially terminal.
“WE WILL NOT GIVE UP – there are a few treatment options available. Come on Dad.”
Anthony bravely fought on through his own battle with cancer and the pain of losing his daughter before he too passed on Sunday.
