“High School Musical” star Vanessa Hudgens opened up about her father’s battle with cancer after she won an award, according to Entertainment Tonight.
The 26-year-old celebrity dedicated the award she won for Breakthrough Performer at the 2015 Industry Dance Awards to her father, Greg, who has stage four cancer, according to Entertainment Tonight. She also explained how her boyfriend, actor Austin Butler, lost his mother to cancer last year, too.
"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,” Hudgens said during her speech.
