In a new interview with local North Carolina news, Kevin Jonas, Sr. opened up about his cancer diagnosis. The Jonas family patriarch explained how his famous sons have supported him through the frightening time from diagnosis to surgery.
“They cancelled their schedule, moved important things,” Kevin said, sharing how Nick Jonas, Joe Jonas and Kevin Jonas, Jr., reacted when he shared the news of his colon cancer. Known affectionally as Papa Jonas, Kevin, Sr. shared how the Jo Bros came together for him.
“They stayed with us, had the last meal before the surgery,” he explained. “They walked me into Sloan-Kettering, which created a little bit of a stir,” he said, referring to the New York-based cancer clinic at which he was treated.
Papa Jonas still has chemotherapy treatments ahead of him. Even as Nick is preparing to drop new music and Joe works to repair Sophie Turner’s public image, it’s obvious the boys will drop everything at a moment’s notice to be with their dad.
