'The View' Co-Host Shares Father's Cancer Announcements, Calls It a 'Wake-up Call'

November 01, 2018Nov 01, 2018

Another "The View" co-host has had a cancer scare.

Abby Huntsman, daughter of U.S. ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman Jr., revealed that her dad was diagnosed with melanoma, reported ABC News.

On the show, she called it "a wake-up call." Huntsman was recently treated skin cancer, confirmed Huntsman, 32.

"I'm a daddy's girl," said on Thursday. "He's my role model in life."

"We don't love anyone more than our own family so hang on tight to the people you love and go get yourself checked out," she added.

Huntsman, who is a dedicated Mormon, revealed his diagnosis in an interview with the Utah newspaper The Deseret News. He shared that he was diagnosed and then received treatment, which involved the removal of two moles.

In the article, Jon Huntsman said that his cancer was in stage 1. Doctors gave him a positive prognosis since it was caught early.

In addition to being the current U.S. ambassador to Russia, Huntsman is the former governor of Utah, former ambassador to China, and former Republican nominee for president.

Her father isn't the only one with a cancer scare. Abby Huntsman said that she also had a skin issue recently.

"Two weeks ago, I had a mole taken out that was headed in the same direction as his," she said, referencing her father's melanoma.

Huntsman revealed that after her father reluctantly told his family about his diagnosis, she turned to a fellow co-host for support. She shared that Meghan McCain, whose father Sen. John McCain died two months ago, was the first person she called.

Please join us in praying for Jon Huntsman's continued health. May God bless him with a complete remission and freedom from future cancer.
