Jax Taylor has confirmed some sad news: his dad, Ronald Cauchi, is battling cancer. "Yes cancer f---ing sucks, watching my father go through this is killing me. Prayers to all the families that have to deal with this awful disease," he shared on Twitter. He continued, "I don’t wish this this disease on my worst enemy. #---cancer watching your loved ones battle while I sit and watch is the worst feeling."
The Vanderpump Rules SURver did not further elaborate on his dad's condition.
When The Daily Dish caught up with Jax earlier this year, he opened up a bit about his parents and how much he is or isn't like his dad. "[My sister, Jenny, is the] totally opposite," he shared. "She's a good person. She works extremely hard. She's the type of person that needs to know where her paycheck's gonna be. She needs to plan. She's the polar opposite of me. She's like my father. She wants to be like me; she just doesn't have it. My mother [Marie] and I are the same."
