"My father was a huge smoker. He used to suck down Lucky Strike unfiltereds (cigarettes) for years," Contactmusic quoted Jon Bon Jovi, as telling the reporters.

"He was a big greaser in the '50s. Watching him deteriorate was a horrible thing. When you get that call (that a loved one has cancer), you're baffled.

"You think, 'This can't be happening,' but if you walk into any room, nearly every person in there has been touched by cancer in some way," he added.
