LITTLE People, Big World star Matt Roloff revealed his father was recently diagnosed with cancer and his mom needs physical therapy after a “bad fall.”
The 59-year-old reality star admitted it’s been “truly scary” to watch his parents deal with these “serious medical challenges.”
Matt has been working on a lot of construction projects on the Roloff family farm lately, including a new home for him and his girlfriend Caryn Chandler to share and a venue for his ex Amy’s wedding.
He’s put a “brief pause” on all of that, though, as he tends to his ailing parents.
On Saturday, he shared a smiling photo with his girlfriend, mom, and dad, but he shared the sad news with fans in the caption.
The LPBW star wrote: “It’s truly a scary moment in life when you find out your parents are needing all the prayers they deserve.
“My mom just 79 years (Huny) and my dad 82 years (Papa) are going through some serious medical challenges.
“Mom needs more physical therapy after a bad fall. And dad needs serious chemo treatment for CLL blood cancer.”
Matt asked for his followers to send them love and well-wishes for a “speedy recovery.”
Believing in his parents’ strength, he added: “They will endure!”
Leaving the farm behind for a little bit, Matt’s visiting with them in Northern California this weekend to spend some time and help with anything they need help with.
He ended his post: “We all have a lot more living to do. Got to get my folks down to warm sunny Arizona so they can spend more years playing in the pool. Blessings to you all and I love you, mom & dad.”
Fans quickly commented how sorry they were to hear this news and to send their “blessings” to his parents.
On August 28, Matt's ex Amy will be tying the knot with fiancé Chris Marek on the Roloff property, and Matt has been working on finishing up a new construction for it.
While Amy's wedding is just around the corner and a project is being worked on for it, fans shouldn't expect to see Matt and his girlfriend there, as they are not invited.
During a Q&A on Instagram Live featuring Amy and her pal Lisa Dixon, one fan asked the Little People, Big World star: "Will Matt and Caryn be at the wedding?"
Amy replied: "No. No, just too much history and I wouldn’t want my ex at the wedding with his longtime girlfriend.”
Lisa then interrupted with: “Didn’t Caryn say on the show she wouldn’t even want to go? And I also thought it was interesting that [Caryn] just called herself ‘Matt’s longtime girlfriend.’”
A source previously exclusively told The Sun: "Amy and Chris are now planning to have the wedding at the farm, and it will be in three months, things are coming together.
"It was Matt's idea initially and Caryn went along with it because they are trying to keep things cordial between them all."
