Vanessa Hudgens revealed that her father Greg is battling with cancer during her speech at the 2015 Industry Dance Awards & Cancer Benefit Show held at Avalon on Wednesday (August 19) in Hollywood.
“Last year, my boyfriend, Austin, lost his mom, Lori, to cancer, and my dad has just been recently diagnosed with stage four cancer,” Vanessa told the crowd. “Let me tell you, I hate cancer. I hate cancer with every cell of my being.”
She continued, “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.”
Our thoughts go out to Vanessa and her family during this difficult time.
