Witney Carson is not going to be on the Dancing With the Stars tour and the fans are going to miss seeing her. People shared the news about what is going on with Witney and what would make her leave the tour. Luckily, nothing is wrong with her health and there is no behind-the-scenes drama going on.

It turns out that her father-in-law, whom she loves very much, is sick and she wants to be by his side. She shared all of the details in an Instagram post. Her father-in-law is suffering from pancreatic cancer. Things have gotten a lot worse for him recently. Witney revealed that he hasn’t been able to hold anything down the last few days, so they took him in to have him checked.

Apparently, Witney Carson’s father-in-law’s cancer has really spread. She wants to be with her husband and her father-in-law at this time instead of out on tour, which the fans can totally understand. They were told that he only has a few weeks left, but he is going to try another aggressive chemotherapy treatment.

Witney Carson shared that she has to focus on her family right now even though she would love to be out on the tour. She wished everyone that will be on the tour the best.

Witney has been married for almost a year now and she started dating her husband back in high school. He had a huge crush on her for quite a while, but they didn’t even start dating until she was a senior. This couple seems like they get along great and Witney is doing the right thing by being by her husband’s side when he really needs her instead of being out and working. They went through a long-distance relationship for quite some time and were able to make it through it all even though that is hard on some couples.

My sweet father-in-law has been dealing with pancreatic cancer for the last year and a half. A few days ago he was having stomach issues & was unable to keep anything down. His doctors decided to do an exploratory surgery to find the problem, which we thought was just a minor issue. Unfortunately, we were completely wrong. The cancer has spread throughout his entire abdomen. We are so blindsided and still in shock… The doctors have explained there is nothing that they can do and have told us that we only have a few weeks with him before the cancer takes his life. After much heartache and discussion, Kevin has decided to fight it and try another aggressive chemotherapy treatment. My heart hurts to tell you all that I will not be able to do the DWTS tour this winter. This is an extraordinarily difficult time for us, I hope all of you can understand that my place is here with my family. Right now, my focus needs to be on my family & especially on my husband. I want to wish my partner, Frankie, and the whole tour an amazing run. I love my fans & I feel so devastated that I can't be there, but know that my heart is there with you ❤️
