Vanessa Hudgens Bravely Opens Up About Her Dad’s Stage Four Cancer Diagnosis

So sad! Vanessa reveals her dad's cancer diagnosis!

This is so sad!

Vanessa Hudgens recently opened up about her father’s health, revealing he has been diagnoses with stage four cancer.

Previously she made no mention of Greg’s health other than in an Instagram post almost a month ago, where she wrote: “My daddy and I ├ó┬¥┬ñ├»┬╕┬Å├ó┬¥┬ñ├»┬╕┬Å├ó┬¥┬ñ├»┬╕┬Å Please pray for his healing!!! The more prayers the better. ├░┼╕Γäó┬Å├░┼╕Γäó┬Å├░┼╕Γäó┬Å├░┼╕Γäó┬Å.”

It must have been so hard for her to open up!

So it’s totally understandable the actress struggled through her speech while accepting her award for Breakthrough Performer at Wednesday night’s Industry Dance Awards when she shared:

“Last year, my boyfriend, Austin, lost his mom, Lori, to cancer, and my dad has just been recently diagnosed with stage four cancer. Let me tell you, I hate cancer. I hate cancer with every cell of my being. This award, it means a lot to me but I dedicate it to my boyfriend’s mom, Lori, my dad, and to all the families out there who are struggling with this, because it really takes a strong person and a strong family to be able to help those out who are going through this”

She’s so right!

We’re just glad Austin Butler is so supportive of V.Hudge and can be that shoulder to lean on during this difficult time.

Your family are in our thoughts and prayers, Vanessa! Wishing you strength.
