Vanessa Hudgens Reveals Father's Cancer Diagnosis

Vanessa Hudgens opened up about her father Greg‘s battle with cancer during the 2015 Industry Dance Awards & Cancer Benefit Show held at Avalon on Wednesday (August 19) in Hollywood.

The 26-year-old Gigi actress stepped out for the event with boyfriend Austin Butler before taking the stage to accept the award for Breakthrough Performer.

“Last year, my boyfriend, Austin, lost his mom, Lori, to cancer, and my dad has just been recently diagnosed with stage four cancer,” Vanessa said during her speech. “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.

    Will keep Vanessa and her family in my prayers. Stage IV cancer is a difficult diagnosis, but one of the blessings is, you make the time to be together and gain strength in each other. May they enjoy every moment.

    That is sad news. It’s hard on everyone in the family when a loved one has cancer.

  • Micca Theobald

    I cared for a family member sick with cancer this past year. 4 months after he got really bad he ended up passing away. I wouldn’t wish watching someone fight for their life or disintegrate right in front of you on my worst enemy. It was the worst experience of my life. But in a weird way I will cherish being able to care for him the way I did, as hard as it was.

    Thoughts & prayers with Vanessa and her family as well as Austin’s. And to whoever else is going through something similar. You are not alone.

    Sorrty about your dad. Her dress is augly and it’s to big on her. She’s skinny.
