    Fergie of The Black Eyed Peas recently saw her father, retired school teacher Jon Patrick, suffer from cancer for the second time in his life.

    Fergie's father was diagnosed with neurological cancer over a decade ago, but he beat the disease via radiation therapy.

    He was so scarred by the experience that he refused to go to the doctor for regular check-ups. Sadly, the cancer came back.

    But he is in remission again!

    Fergalicious told Oprah during an interview: "He had cancer and he did radiation the first time, didn't like it. It was a bad experience for him. The cancer went away. Then he didn't go to the doctor for 10 years and the cancer came back even stronger. It was in his lungs, his spine. And right away I said, 'I wanna have kids and you haven't even seen them yet dad.'"

    Aw, how sweet and sad, and loving of his daughter.
