We rarely ever see Bradley Cooper so raw.
At the launch of Sean Parker's AMAZING cancer research foundation, the Parker Institute For Cancer Immunotherapy, Bradley opened up about losing his father to lung cancer in 2011. Understandably, the loss is still incredibly difficult to talk about.

In a brave move, Cooper used his father's passing as an example for why we need more resources for people diagnosed with the deadly disease. Even though the actor had a ton of resources and money to help his dad, it was still an exhaustive process. Given how difficult it was for Brad to deal with, he expressed awe and sympathy for those who aren't as fortunate.
Becoming emotional as he spoke, B.C. recalled caring for his sick poppa:
"I just want to tell you about my father Charles J. Cooper, he passed away from lung cancer in 2011. I was in a very lucky position because I was able to put everything on hold in all aspects of my life and completely focus on taking care of him."
Even with all of Brad's good fortune, the situation was less than ideal:
