No family ever wants to hear the devastating news of a cancer diagnosis that can drastically change their lives forever.
In a sad turn of events, the news that Jessica Simpson's father Joe Simpson has been diagnosed with prostate cancer has just been released.
Joe was diagnosed initially two months ago and underwent subsequent prostate surgery to battle the cancer.
His family and friends have been by his side as a source of love and support through this heartbreaking time, but there is hope on the horizon.
Joe's doctors have said that his operation went very well and that he is currently in recovery, back at work and leading a healthier lifestyle.
A source close to the family has reportedly said Joe is "feeling great now and is optimistic... He's felt so much love and support from his family and his friends."
Our love and thoughts are with Joe and the Simpson family as he continues to recover.
