“Frankie came home from school, Nick came from L.A., Joe flew directly from Japan. They canceled their schedules, moved important things,” he told NBC Charlotte.

Jonas said that he felt a “responsibility” to open up about his condition to help raise awareness to others.

“They stayed with us, last meal before surgery. They walked me into Sloan Kettering, which created a little bit of a stir,” he said of his supportive children. “We watched them grow up and I think it’s like all parents — you see your kids grow up and if they become good people you’re proud.”
