Kevin Jonas Sr, patriarch of the famous Jonas Brothers, has been diagnosed with colon cancer.
The father of Kevin Jonas, 29, Joe Jonas, 27, Nick Jonas, 24, and “Bonus Jonas” Frankie Jonas, 16, revealed to NBC Charlotte that he’s been battling colon cancer, undergoing treatment over the past few months after being diagnosed in March.
“They were shaken,” the 52-year-old said of when he shared the news with his four sons — adding that they dropped everything to be by their father’s side. “Frankie came home from school, Nick came from L.A., Joe flew directly from Japan — they canceled their schedules, moved important things.”
He was initially treated at New York City’s Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. “They walked me into Sloan Kettering, which created a little bit of a stir,” he quipped.
Kevin will have to undergo chemotherapy but is said to be doing well. He is pushing men 50 and older to be sure to be screened for colon cancer.
