Daddy's Death Cause

When Caroline was only one, her father, Monahan, passed away at the age of 42. Her mother, in an interview, said the diagnosis of Jay made her world go from "complete contentment to complete chaos." Jay ultimately lost his battle with cancer on January 24, 1998, after being sick for nine months in Lenox Hill Hospital located in Manhattan. 

"I wish that I had the courage to really talk to my husband about the fact that he was probably going to die. It was too terrifying," and. "I think that prevented me ... from ever really saying goodbye."

Since the death of Jay, Couric became an advocate against cancer and even co-founded the Stand Up for Cancer charity.
