‘Bachelor Pad 2’ star Michelle Money’s dad passes away

Michelle Money loses her dad to Cancer

Michelle Money might be one of the few contestants on this season of ‘Bachelor Pad’ that wants to win the prize money for all the right reasons.

Michelle wants to win the $250,000 cash prize and use some of the cash to help further cancer research.  The charity is close to Money’s heart as her father, who she introduced on the season premiere of the show, was battling colon cancer.

Unfortunately, Michelle has said that her father lost the battle with Cancer and he passed away on Sunday.  Money said that her father passed away “knowing how loved he was” and that he was “surrounded by family.”

Michelle thanked everyone for their love and support and spoke out about her dad through her Twitter.  She said;

“Thank you to all for the love and prayers. My dad loved getting tweets from those of u who did. The suffering is done. He is at peace, but his life was cut far too short. I am praying that I can use my dads strength and reach out and bring awareness to this awful cancer. I will do all I can to prevent anyone else from having to witness what my family and I have. This I can promise.  Thank you thank you thank you. I believe very strongly in the power of prayer. U all have NO IDEA how your tweets give me strength. Thank u.”
