Let’s just say this right now — cancer sucks. It’s a tough diagnosis and battle, and it’s impacted most of us in some way. That’s why we’re so glad that Nick Jonas updated us on his dad’s health, since not only do we care about the family, but we understand the struggle that they’re going through.

Kevin Jonas Sr. was diagnosed with colon cancer back in March, and the unfortunate diagnosis — as you’d expect — rattled the family a bit. The good news is that he’s currently on the positive side of things, which as Nick explained in an interview with iHeartRadio’s Label Defiers with ZICO Coconut Water, is bringing a lot of relief.

The update came when Nick was asked about something he’s proud of.

Not only is he proud of his dad, but he’s proud of his entire family for sticking together during such a tough time.

We have a feeling that all of the love and support helped Kevin Sr. so much during such a trying time.

Nick Jonas has always been close with his family, which means that he’s probably thought a bit about starting his own — right?

We have a feeling he’s going to be a pretty fantastic one.
