Vanessa Hudgens Dedicates ‘Grease: Live’ to Father Greg After He Dies from Cancer

Vanessa Hudgens is mourning the loss of her father.

The actress made the incredibly sad announcement on Twitter that her father, Greg, passed away on Saturday (Jan. 30, 2016) after his battle with cancer. “I am so sad to say that last night my daddy, Greg passed away from stage 4 cancer. Thank you to everyone who kept him in your prayers,” she wrote.

The High School Musical alum, who is starring as Rizzo in Sunday’s (Jan. 31, 2016) production of Grease: Live, says she’s dedicating her performance to him.

Hudgens first revealed her father’s diagnosis this past summer, and had posted a picture with him on Instagram, asking friends and fans to pray for his healing.

My daddy and I ❤️❤️❤️ Please pray for his healing!!! The more prayers the better. 🙏🙏🙏🙏 A photo posted by Vanessa Hudgens (@vanessahudgens) on
