The Jonas Brothers have banded together and it's not for the reason you may think.
It was reported that their father, Kevin Jonas Sr., was diagnosed with colon cancer back in March. It took a long time for any of the boys to speak about what was going on which shows the kind of people they really are. This was about family not about headlines. Kevin Sr. spoke with a radio station in Charlotte, North Carolina about what his sons did in a time that he really needed them the most.
He said, "They canceled their schedule, moved important things. They stayed with us, had the last meal before the surgery. They walked me into [Memorial] Sloan-Kettering [Cancer Center], which created a little bit of a stir."
Seriously, we're sobbing. This is so freaking sweet. Although the surgery had gone well and Papa Jonas' prognosis looked good, he still had some chemotherapy treatments ahead of him. In the wake of all of this, Papa Jonas is encouraging other people his age to stay on top of their doctors' appointments for early detection.
This past year has been a whirlwind for the Jonas family. Kevin Jonas Jr. welcomed a new baby girl into his life with his wife Danielle Jonas. The two are already parents to their daughter Alena Rose. Nick Jonas had a big year as well releasing a lot of new music and his album Last Year Was Complicated. And of course, we can't forget about Joe Jonas doing his thang with his new band DNCE.
Joe is killing it in the professional world as well as his personal life. He has gotten into a super serious relationship with actress Sophie Turner from Game of Thrones.
However, none of that mattered when it came to their dad's health. It just goes to show where their priorities really are. Fame never lasts forever but the family does. Nick recently opened up about the situation and gave fans good news. Kevin Sr. is cancer free! The "Levels" singer chatted with iHeartRadio's Label Defier podcast and said, "He's cancer-free now, or on the tail end of it. All is good."
Nick continued, "Being here with him when he went in to have his tumor removed was a really special thing and really important. I had a lot of things on my schedule, but I said, 'I'm going to be here with you and walk through this with you and the family.' It was a moment of pride for all of us to say, 'Alright, all that we been through, with the brothers, and Dad being a manager at one time,' to be able to be there with him, be a unit as a family, is something I think, we should be really proud of."
We're so happy for the family and the good news. Our thoughts are with all of them as they continue to overcome what we can only imagine has been a very tumultuous year.
