Chrishell Stause is speaking out about her family’s battle with cancer.
The 38-year-old actress shared some heartbreaking news concerning her mother on Instagram on Tuesday, February 4. On the same day as World Cancer Day, the Selling Sunset star revealed that her mom has been given “1 to 2 months to live” after being diagnosed with lung cancer – the same condition that took her father’s life last year.
“I just found out today is #worldcancerday eerily on the same day I found out my mom has 1 to 2 months to live from the same lung cancer that took my dad on Easter,” Stause wrote. “I can’t make sense of what life is teaching me yet, but my heart is with every person fighting this horrible disease and every person that it robbed a loved one from.”
The actress’s Instagram post, which features a picture of a burning candle, read, “February 4th Is World Cancer Day. I light this candle in honor of all cancer survivors, fighters and those who have lost their lives to cancer.”
In April 2019, Stause opened up about her late father’s battle with lung cancer in a touching Instagram post.
“We lost you today but it was a long terrible battle with cancer that started taking you years ago. I choose to remember you the way you were before it took it’s hold on you,” she wrote, alongside a photo of her dad. “You are at peace now, and ever the Catholic man at heart, I think you chose Easter for a reason.”
Stause added, “I grew up in an unconventional family and my dad was a drummer-the heartbeat of the music. Today we lost the heartbeat of our family but I am happy knowing he took his music to heaven. It just got alot [sic] more rock and roll up there. We love you so much.”
