Witney Carson Pulls Out of 'DWTS: Live' Light Up The Night Tour For A Heartbreaking Reason

Witney Carson has announced that she will not be on the upcoming DWTS Live: Light Up The Night tour kicking off at the end of the month.

The DWTS pro dancer revealed the heartbreaking reason why on Instagram today:

“My sweet father-in-law has been dealing with pancreatic cancer for the last year and a half. A few days ago he was having stomach issues & was unable to keep anything down,” Witney writes. “His doctors decided to do an exploratory surgery to find the problem, which we thought was just a minor issue. Unfortunately, we were completely wrong.”

“The cancer has spread throughout his entire abdomen. We are so blindsided and still in shock… The doctors have explained there is nothing that they can do and have told us that we only have a few weeks with him before the cancer takes his life. After much heartache and discussion, Kevin has decided to fight it and try another aggressive chemotherapy treatment.”

Witney adds, “My heart hurts to tell you all that I will not be able to do the DWTS tour this winter. This is an extraordinarily difficult time for us, I hope all of you can understand that my place is here with my family.”

“Right now, my focus needs to be on my family & especially on my husband. I want to wish my partner, Frankie, and the whole tour an amazing run. I love my fans & I feel so devastated that I can’t be there, but know that my heart is there with you.”

We’re sending our prayers and thoughts to Witney and Carson, and their family, as they deal with this heartbreaking situation.
