Actress Vanessa Hudgens announced the death of her father hours before she planned to take to the stage for Fox’s production of “Grease: Live.”

In 2015, the Daily Mail newspaper reported that the actress revealed her father’s diagnosis while accepting an award during the 2015 Industry Dance Awards in Los Angeles.

“Last year, my boyfriend, Austin, lost his mom, Lori, to cancer, and my dad has just been recently diagnosed with stage four cancer,” she said. “Let me tell you, I hate cancer. I hate cancer with every cell of my being.”

In January 2016 she asked fans to pray for her dad.
