Emily Warburton-Adams has updated fans on her father's condition after he was diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal cancer last August. "Today we found out that he has an E. coli strain of pneumonia that he's being treated for," Emily shared in her latest Instagram Story. "The cancer has also spread to his brain."

The Below Deck Season 4 stew began her message to fans with an update on the money that was raised through the JustGiving page set up by Emily, her sister Isabella, and her brother Max, in the hopes of raising funds to fly their dad back to his home in the U.K. from Malaysia, where he had been hospitalized immediately following his diagnosis. The JustGiving page raised £35,515 (about $46,703), as of the time of this writing. "We have held the correct funds raised for the repatriation in the hope that his condition would improve," Emily shared in her Instagram Story. "A fraction of the funds have assisted with his palliative care in the interim."

Emily went on to thank everyone for all of their love and support during this difficult time. "I'm updating at this stage because you've been such a wonderful support and we are so grateful for your donations," she wrote. "We don't know how the next stage of events will unfold, but it's easier updating now rather [than] later."
