Losing her father to lung cancer
It has been less than a year since Chrishell lost her father to cancer. The actress used Instagram last April to share the news her father had been battling cancer for years.
Chrishell called her father the heartbeat of the family. She shared that he was a Catholic man at heart, and the family believed he chose to pass on Easter for a reason.
“You are at peace now, and ever the Catholic man at heart, I think you chose Easter for a reason. I grew up in an unconventional family, and my dad was a drummer-the heartbeat of the music,” the actress wrote in part of her social media message.
